As mentioned in my previous post, I did some work this summer with manipulating Subversion dump files using Erlang. I've written a probably way too long text about this for the RedHotErlang blog maintained by my friend and colleague, the legendary Tobbe T.
If you're interested in this sort of thing - for example, if you're currently thinking about how to convert your messy Subversion repository to Git - you might want to read it. Or perhaps you just want something to help you go to sleep. Otherwise, you're forgiven if you don't follow that link.
