[darcs-users] SVN integration

Hi all!

I'm currently trying to fetch out some kind of "project plan"...
therefor I used some hours of the last weeks or so to look through the
current code base and get some overview about where to get started. As
far as I can see, the most interesting bits are those read_repo
methods (as in Darcs.Repository.Internal.read_repo with the
implementations in DarcsRepo and HashedRepo). Methinks that I'll need
another read_repo method for svn repositories and a special case for
the darcs push command, and lots of code to convert all the changes
from svn to darcs patches and back again. (Can someone confirm my
thoughts?) Where else would I have to interfere with existing code? I
could definitly use some guidance here...

So that are my questions for now, but more will follow soon :)
