I have seen that he posted to the grass-dev list - very good.

Concerning the main repository:
We definitely won't switch to SVN quickly since it seems to be a slooooow
process (sigh).

Probably a GRASS SVN Addon would be best for now. We can easily
migrate it into the main trunk then. All changes necessary in the libs can
go directly into CVS of course so that the Addon stuff is compilable all
the time.

For a module, the best breeding site might be the Addons SVN (however,
with your vector/v.label.sa/ we do differently).

Time to work out some rules for this. So I cc'ed to the dev list for
further discussion.
