I've been fairly active in the development of Subversion over the past few months, and I decided to attempt use this activity as a method of income over the summer. So, I applied to the Google Summer of Code program to work on Subversion, specifically the "Merge Tracking" component that is one of the big features of our next release. My work won't be part of that release, but will build upon those features for the future. It should be a good summer!
(Oh, and many thanks to Google for funding the program.)
