We are basically out of time.

Unless there are any reasonable objections, I propose to reply to
Sally's email with the following.

I've taken into account everything that was discussed previously,
incorporated Johan's and Daniel's suggested tasks, removed the ones
that Julian pointed out are a bad idea, need review, or are pending a
design, etc.

Please speak up with any improvements as soon as possible!

If I hear nothing to the contrary, I'll assume silence = agreement
and reply to Sally (with CC to this list) at 12:00 AM GMT.

Proposed message follows:


Dear Sally,

We have opportunities for the 2-day hackathon across several skill set
areas including: web design, documentation, swig bindings, Python, and
C programming:

* Web design on

  - Incorporate normalize.css and main.css from

  - Improve the navigation bar to make the static pages mobile
    friendly, while keeping the site in a form that can be

* Documentation:

  - SVN-3914 - INSTALL: document how to compile with libmagic on

* Python programming:

  - Implement linking with libmagic on Windows in the build scripts.

* Swig bindings:

  - SVN-4781 - expose svn_fs_change_rev_prop2() to swig.

  - SVN-4568 - expose svn_fs_set_warning_func() to swig.

* C programming:

  - SVN-4343 - FSFS backend work: "svnadmin verify" should verify
    changed-paths list.

  - SVN-4605 - "svnadmin verify" doesn't verify locks.

Hackathon participants should join our 'dev' mailing list and introduce
themselves. To join, email -- see for details.

We'll be happy to provide whatever guidance we can, as well as review
and (hopefully) apply some quality patches!

If you have any questions, please let us know by emailing!

Kind regards,
