Subversion, meet Perl

so apparently people on the perl 5 porters list are starting to toss around the idea of switching from perforce to svn for their repository. to let people play around with that, Andreas Koenig and Rafael Garcia-Suarez have written the Perl::Repository::APC package, which contains scripts to convert the 'All Perl Changes' set of patches into a Subversion repository that holds Perl's revision history.

This is just so damn cool. It's very nice seeing people start to use our work in real applications. (Not that this is the first time that has happened, but it's still nice.)
