I ve clubbed all the above blog posts into a single article about my SubConf 2009 experiences, which got published in December 2009 issue of Linux For You magazine.

A gist from the article is follows, you can download the entire article from the attachment to this post,

SubConf is the annual conference of the Subversion community. SubConf 2009 was the third such event, held at Munich, Germany, from October 27 to 29, 2009. While it’s a user conference where Subversion users from various parts of the world participate, it does feature developer hackathons where the project’s core developers come together to discuss the roadmap, hack on code, et al. Developers also meet the users to get feedback, and study their requirements so that future releases can cater to these.

SubConf 2009 had 10 core Subversion developers at the conference venue—Stephen Butler, Stefan Sperling and Neels Hofmeyr (of Elego); Julian Foad of WANdisco; Greg Stein (a popular open source developer); Hyrum K. Wright (Subversion Corp), Lieven Govaerts, Bert Huijben (of The Competence Group), C. Michael Pilato and myself ( from Collabnet, Inc).
