Yeah, I'd probably just store the data on a Linux server since it's some binary files needed by our build system that I'm versioning.  I really just need some way for Subversion to keep file modification dates rather than check-in dates.  But I read your thread on the SVN list where they basically said you were alone in the desert and no one wanted your patch...  Thanks SVN guys.

In terms of environment, I'd be running on either XP Pro or Server 2003.  I hadn't really looked at the compilation options yet.  I'd probably lean towards VC8/VC2005 just because I have it installed, but mingw or cygwin might be more appropriate if FSVS is leaning on Unix APIs.  I don't think cygwin will produce native windows binaries, but it's possible that the make file & compiles will run more or less unmodified.

To store the data on Linux, access it via Samba from Windows? Probably.

The other way would be to do a SMB mount from a linux-box, and run fsvs on
that - but that could be slooooooooow ......

Just for info - which compiler/environment would you use? Windows 2000, XP,
Vista? VC7, VC2003, VC2007? cygwin, mingw?



Versioning your /etc, /home or even your whole installation?
