SVN write permission is generally given to individuals who show an 
interest in engine development and have proven their ability to code by 
submitting patches. I'm sure you can code, but are you actually 
interested in development of the engine beyond a single set of 
iOS-specific patches?

80-85% of users use Windows.

I would be happy to apply iOS patches for you (obviously, provided they 
don't cause other problems, etc.). I haven't seen iOS patches from you, 
but perhaps that's because you sent/posted them somewhere I didn't notice.

Send me a patch (or file a bug report with a patch and let me know about 
it), and I'll address it soon.
