  • I'm a perl guy (with hundreds of patches into perl.) However I did wrote articles for oreillynet about svn -- I contributed patches to svn -- I wrote a perforce-to-svn converter for the perl sources. I think that lots of people in the perl community appreciate svn or consider it with respect. (But, nobody being perfect, Greg Stein is a Python zealot...)
    • The svn people are very good and very intelligent, but Perl is generally not their tool of choice. However, I never saw any Perl bigotry from them in the time I read their mailing list. When a flamewar erupted between Chip Salzenburg and Eric Raymond (I would say entirely at Eric's behest) over Perl they basically asked that it go away.

      I think they just consider Perl/subversion integration to be somebody else's itch.
