Hi Martin,

What is the point on having a branch in the svn repo if you won't be
able to commit ? Maybe I misunderstood what you said, so maybe could
you clarify that answer ?

It is required to submit the "final and complete" work done during
GSoC to a project under code.google.com. That project will be
automatically created after gsoc ends. But yeh, we could create
another project there to use as a repo for the summer.

And thank you, James Tauber, effbot and everyone else that accepted me
as a student this year too. I guess I should create a new thread to
introduce myself and my project =)
