Information about accessing the Subversion repository is here:
It's on our Trac, which has its own wiki. Any developer with access
to the Subversion repository can add/modify/delete pages on the Trac.
I very strongly encourage us to migrate developer-centric information
over to the Trac, because it's so much easier to modify than the web
site. For volunteers to help us migrate CVS-centric documentation to
SVN-centric documentation, they need only get a Subversion account
(see the above page), then start editing the Trac wiki.
As for the regression scripts... I don't expect that it will be a
huge change, although it will take some time to ripple through. I run
several sets of tests at OSL, so of course these will be the first to
move over to the Subversion repository.
