Thanks for telling us anyway.  I think the way the sources are managed
should be decided among the immediately involved (and although I have
not yet started using SVN, I am sure that you considered the
implications of this move well), that is why I kept quiet on this
issue.  However, the Council should have a clear image of what is
where and why, so I would like to ask you to give us an executive
summary of the State of P5 once the transition is completed.

Which gives me another chance to remind you that we are waiting for
reports on the Great Class Struggle within the next 2 days.

All the best,
