-<li><p style="font-weight: bold;">Improve bindings to other programming languages.</p>
-    <p>One of Subversion's strengths is that it offers a rich set of
-    &quot;binding surfaces&quot;: APIs that are available not only in C
-    (Subversion's native language) but in other programming languages as
-    well (currently Perl, Python, Ruby, and Java).</p>
-    <p>Some of these language bindings are maintained via <a
-     href="">SWIG</a>, a tool that partially automates
-    the process of generating bindings, while others are maintained by
-    hand.  Many of the bindings do not have complete coverage yet, or have
-    interface problems where they do have coverage (for instance, they might
-    not expose all API elements of the latest Subversion release).
-    So even though the bindings are used in many production systems,
-    and used to build popular Subversion clients such as <a
-    href="">Subclipse</a>, there's still
-    plenty of work to do.</p>
-    <p>Another huge problem for users of the bindings is a
-    <a href=""
-    >lack of proper documentation</a> specific to the bindings.</p>
-<li><p style="font-weight: bold;">Show progress output.</p>
-    <p>Improve the progress output displayed during update and commit.
-    See <a href=""
-    >issue&nbsp;#901</a> for details.</p>
-<li><p style="font-weight: bold;">Improve 'svn help'.</p>
-  <p>Currently, the texts shown by the <tt>svn help</tt> command are being
-     maintained directly in the main source code file of the <tt>svn</tt>
-     binary, which can be viewed online <a
-     href=""
-    >here</a>.
-    It has been <a href=""
-    >proposed</a> to move these help texts into a separate file format instead.</p>
-    <p>This could ease maintenance of help text translations, allow shipping
-    of UNIX-style manual pages for each <tt>svn</tt> subcommand, and might also
-    make it possible to consolidate the help texts and the
-    <a href=""
-    >reference section</a> of the
-    <a href="">Subversion Book</a>.</p>
-    <p>It has also been <a href=""
-    >suggested</a> to add a tutorial mode to <tt>svn help</tt> to make
-    it easier for new users to get started with Subversion without consulting
-    the documentation upfront.</p>
-<li><p style="font-weight: bold;">More customizable behavior for 'svn diff'.</p>
-    <p>Add support for fully customizable external diff invocations, and
-    support for external diff commands for non-text types. See <a
-    href=""
-    >Issue&nbsp;#2044</a> and <a
-    href=""
-    >issue&nbsp;#2447</a> for details.</p>
-<li><p style="font-weight: bold;">XML output for 'svn mergeinfo'</p>
-    <p>Teach <tt>svn mergeinfo</tt> to create XML output.
-    See <a href=""
-    >issue&nbsp;#4245</a> for details.</p>
-<li><p style="font-weight: bold;">Make 'svn patch' support 'svn:mergeinfo'
-  properties.</p>
-    <p>Teach <tt>svn patch</tt> to support mergeinfo.
-    See <a href=""
-    >issue&nbsp;#3747</a> for details.</p>
-<li><p style="font-weight: bold;">Enable interoperability testing.</p>
-    <p>The tests frameworks (<tt>make check</tt>) have limited support
-    testing with different client and server versions (1.8-dev clients and
-    1.7 server, for example; or vice-versa).  Make it easier to run such
-    interoperability/compatibility tests.  Ideally, also lay the groundwork
-    to setting up a <a href="/buildbot">buildslave</a> to run these tests
-    regularly (we'll provide the hardware).</p>
-    <p>A related goal is compatibility with older on-disk formats, but at the
-    time of writing the author believes <tt>--server-minor-version</tt> and
-    <tt></tt> cover the needed.</p>
-<li><p style="font-weight: bold;">Mtime preservation.</p>
-    <p>Implement support for preserving the last-modified timestamp of
-    versioned files. See the
-       <a href=""
-       >MtimePreservation</a> in our wiki for details.
-    </p>
-<li><p style="font-weight: bold;">None of the above? Find a project idea in
-    the issue tracker!</p>
-    <p>Our <a href="reporting-issues.html">issue tracker</a> contains plenty
-    of open tasks and unfixed bugs. The list of <a
-    href=""
-    >issues that might be relatively easy to fix</a> is a good starting
-    point.</p>
