All righty, then... here is your first appendix item:

24.xxx  Subversion 1.0 (http://subversion.tigris.org/)

   A. Subversion client
      i. Required options:
         a. RFC 2518, Class 1  (but not Class 2)
	 b. Core versioning (but not: VERSION-CONTROL, UNCHECKOUT, or
	    SET-TARGET)
	 c. Client-Workspace option
	 d. Label option  (probably; not entirely sure because our "label"
	    may simply be a COPY)
	    [ this also presumes Label will be split from Client-WS ]
	 e. Activity option
	 f. Version-History-Resource option
	 g. Version-Controlled-Collection option
	 h. Fork-Control option
	 i. Subversion-specific items: a custom report, DAV:version-name
	    must be an integer representing repository-global-change, atomic
	    CHECKIN of activities, DAV:prop supported within the DAV:checkin
	    element (to enable returning post-checkin information, such as
	    new version resource URLs), possibly other TBD items???

      ii. Supported options: none

   B. Subversion server support
      i. RFC 2518, Class 1
      ii. Subversion-specific subsets for each of 24.xxx.A.i.[b-i] The
	  Subversion server will not fully support DeltaV's Core or Options.


And yes, I realize that the above spec implies that neither the client nor
the server will be interoperable with other DAV systems. That support will
take place in a future version (after 1.0). Limited subsets will be
available, so interop will depend highly upon what the client expects and
uses from the server.

Cheers,
