Subject [RFC] Shelving and Checkpointing
Date Mon, 10 Jul 2017 12:59:22 GMT
Dear Subversion Developers,

I am delighted to announce that I am working with Assembla to develop
shelving and checkpointing functionality in Subversion. These have
been on the wish list for many years, and are becoming ever more in
demand since the popularity of git is making more users appreciate the
benefits of local operations.

Based on our many discussions in the past, along with a fresh look at
how other VCS's implement these features, I have written down the
requirements and started working on a design in the document
Shelving-Checkpointing Dev [1]. I will follow up with an HTML email
containing a copy of today's version. I invite you to leave comments
directly in Google Docs, or send them by reply here, as you prefer.

I will be the project lead on this within Assembla. I will regularly
demonstrate small increments of functionality, which will also act as
calls for feedback. We want to keep the scope quite small to get it
done as quickly as possible.

Please read through and if you are able to contribute with any
suggestions or practical help, that would be wonderful. Thanks!

- Julian
