I can hardly catch up on the discussion. There seem to appear more
messages each day than I can read. Many participants and messages are
a good thing, though. I might miss some things now, but I'd like to
participate before the discussion is over.

I like the idea, too. I'm using SVN a lot and I commit quite often.
I'm also using branches for most things. For those who see a
limitation in SVN regarding "local" commits I recommend looking into
the "git-svn" [1] bridge. It lets you use git locally and svn as the
public repo. So one can commit, branch, revert, change history locally
using the power of git, and then push the changes to the svn repo.

Currently I'd like Boost to stick with svn and suggest people who like
git shall try "git-svn" or "git svn" (git seems to have native support
for svn.)
