New developer, SVN commits


I am trying to join this project and I have some newbie questions:

- I downloaded nightly binary kicad-20080428-r1006-linux.tar.bz2 which
does not work on my Fedora 7, library issues.
I also checked out latest SVN files and compiled, but it shows build
ver. (20080416-r982).
Why the difference? Do we still have two SVN sources?

- When compiling, I received some compiler warnings (uninitialized
variables, int/double conversions). I would like to clean them up
first to get some practice. Should I just start on it or use this
group first for communication. What is the process for delegating work.

- I read the todo.txt and I can start with some @todo but again how do
I arrange that to avoid duplication of work.

- How do I get write access to SVN and what is the commit process
(just commit and let others comment?)

I wanted to ask first before I screw up something.
