I tried on two occasions to subscribe to that mailing list but there seemed
to be no response. Does anyone know why or have contact with the book
maintainers? It's a very good book. I still refer to it frequently.
Bringing it up-to-date with 1.9 and current best practices would benefit
all of us.

Also, some sections could be expanded. Just one example is how to deal with
vendor branches. There was some recent discussion here about communication
between the FreeBSD and Subversion maintainers, and some practices that
could be updated by FreeBSD and/or improvements made to Subversion. The
results of such discussions are exactly the sort of information that should
be documented in the svn-book. I propose an additional chapter on real
world scenarios and case studies, to help potential adopters and long-time
users alike.
