Well, there's going to be a sizable group that will be interested in DAV 
related items (which have a tangential effect on Subversion).  However, 
most of these changes are going to be in mod_dav not in anything directly 
related to Subversion - hence it's on-topic for an ASF Hackathon.  Namely, 
DAV ACL support and perhaps some mechanisms for DAV Server<->DAV Server 
support (i.e. distributed DAV).  We have some rough ideas how some of this 
will play out - I can show people some of our notes, but we really haven't 
had fleshed-out conversations regarding these topics yet.

During the week, I'll probably also be working on serf some more.  I've 
recently been doing some work on that, so perhaps others will have ideas 
for directions serf can go.

I can probably help Rich out with the Auth tutorial for the new httpd auth 
implementation since I'm partly to blame for the new auth code...

And, it'd be *real* nice if we came up with a strategy for how we can 
separate the APR and APR-util build systems so that we can have a 1.0 
release of APR.  I bet we could release APR 1.0 during ApacheCon.  =)

It'd also be nice if we can figure out how to get PHP to become streamy 
(currently, PHP requires file descriptors for script input).  However, I'm 
not sure if we're going to have enough PHP people present at the Hackathon 
to really make any substantial progress.  It'd be nice, and I think that's 
a topic Cliff and (possibly) Aaron might be more interested than I am.

Oh, and I guarantee someone will want to redesign how httpd does its 
filtering (perhaps coming out of the PHP filter issue above).  If that 
happens, everything else gets shot to hell.  That topic is a massive time 
sink.

And, of course, if anyone has any other ideas, I'm game, but that's my 
starting point of a plan.  -- justin
