Sorry not had time to read patches.

Patches apply fine on 8.2-RELEASE.
Then manually using deltas OK:
ctm -v /pub/FreeBSD/development/CTM/svn-cur/svn-cur.0001.xz
ctm -v /pub/FreeBSD/development/CTM/svn-cur/svn-cur.00[0-9][0-9].xz
Maybe you might want a 5 digit numeric, not 4 digit, like cvs-cur ?
(as eg there's often more cvs deltas than other deltas)

I've not tried accessing the resultant tree with svn yet
(my Subversion book not read yet).
In my /pub/FreeBSD/development/FreeBSD-SVN I have a single directory
which has 5.6 Gig of README.txt conf db format hooks locks
I looked on
not yet :
I guess you will get those created after you see success reports such as this.
When list ctm-svn-cur-fast is created I will subscribe.
( I have set up my mail aliases, .procmailrc, scripts & treees,
to automaticaly store & apply when the mailing starts. )
Thanks Stephen !
