A small svn howto for bug reporters would probably help though
in your case.  Specifically for testing bug fixes while we
are working on.  I need to write some bug  reporting guidelines
as well.  Most people don't provide the necessary amount of detail
to reproduce or track down the issue to begin with.

But I think having the general comunity pull patches from
svn would be a grenade waiting to explode.  The patches page
needs to be easy to pull from and apply.  It would be too easy
for people to pull the wrong or incomplete patch from anonymous
