[Python-Dev] I would like an svn account

I already asked in September to get an svn account to be able to commit 
directly patches to trunk (or other branches like py3k). My query was 
rejected because I didn't know Python core enough (and maybe other reasons 
that I don't know).

I helped to fix many issues using the bug tracker. The bigger patch was the 
bytes filename support for Python3, accepted by Guido (after a long 
review ;-)).

Why an svn account instead of just using the amazing bug tracker? Just because 
there are not enough people to review/commit patches on the tracker and so 
there are more and more open issues (and so more and more lost patches) :-( I 
will be able to work faster using the svn.
