Not to discourage you, but more to educate, generally speaking we open  
up access to SVN after several contributions and the earning of  
"merit" as determined by the Lucene PMC.  This is often referred to as  
the Apache Way, or at least it is a part of the Apache way.

For guidelines on becoming a committer, see http://cwiki.apache.org/MAHOUT/howtobecomeacommitter.html

  (they are for Mahout, a sister project of Tika's under the Lucene  
umbrella, but they more or less (unofficially) sum up the Lucene PMC's  
position on adding committers)

So, basically, keep up the work and stick around and you will likely  
become a committer at some point in the (near) future.
