I'll take a closer look, but I did browse it quickly and had one question:

Do we know more about what it means to have Pootle access Subversion?
Does this need read/write access?  If so, what SVN account is it
using?  Is it using credentials from the current logged in Pootle
user?  Does it need to store SVN login credentials?

Since Pootle and SVN are both ASF-wide services, managed by the
Infrastructure team, we'll need to coordinate this carefully.
Security concerns will weigh heavily on what is possible here.
