I understand the difficulties, but I really don't see the main SVN
working as a general community collaboration area; there is only one
level of access to the SVN, and other projects have seen considerable
problems with new users accidentally checking code in at the wrong
place, etc, etc. Projects like OpenLayers have a main area and a
sandbox area, but I don't think that they are on the OSGeo SVN
infrastructure yet (because of this permissions issue).
I wonder if it would make more sense to set up a MapGuideSamples project
at Google Code with more relaxed commit rights, and then link to
sections of that from the Wiki for more extensive community application
sharing? We might be able to look into other OSGeo-based solutions, but
in general with this kind of volunteer organisation you need to try to
minimise maintenance overhead as much as possible.
This is something that we should probably talk about at the next PSC

Kudos, Dennis :-) Same thing with me.
Jason, regarding the sample code section - it's somewhat hard to post
and run sample project as a single wiki entry. It's just not suitable
for anything more than few lines of code, and I'm not saying that sample
code section is a bad idea. How about creating a samples branch under
current version + disclaimer?
