[fdo-internals] Defects in PostGIS provider

Hi Everybody,

How do I go about submitting defect reports against the PostGIS provider in
trunk\Providers\PostGIS? I've downloaded and built the code to track down
some problems I was having, and I've uncovered what look like three issues
with the provider itself that are blocking me from proceeding with

1) InsertCommand::Execute can only insert NULL geometry values successfully.
This is the worst of the three defects, because there's no way to work
around it. Internally the code is building a non-parameterized statement
string and the WKB format fields are being interpreted by PostGIS as long
integers, which causes insertion to fail.
2) ApplySchemaCommand::Execute always issues CREATE TABLE statement(s) - it
cannot be used to delete a feature class.
3) Some internal checks are case-sensitive after Postgres has changed the
case to all lower, so (for example) a newly-created schema with a multi-case
name cannot be accessed or used with the name it was created under.

P.S. I would be interested in helping to fix these if I knew my efforts
could be integrated into the code stream. What process is in place for
getting write access to the Subversion vault?
