Maybe it's sufficient to patch your current subversion client with my patches
and re-compile that in windows?
But tortoise and other wouldn't do that ... so you'd have to use a commandline
program anyway.

Yes, but I believe you'd need a *complete* cygwin install of subversion - apr,
subversion, and all dependencies (like neon and whatever else) ... doesn't
sound so easy.

mingw could work with the native subversion libraries. That's my best bet.

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?

Sorry, I don't know.

It's possible that FSVS compiles by using cygwin ... but then you'd have
to compile the svn and apr libraries with cygwin, too.

It should be possible to change FSVS to get it to compile for Win32.


Binaries are not (yet) available. Surely not for Windows, as this is the
first request for it.


I don't think I'll find time in the next 2 months - if you're interested
in making that work (or find another volunteer), I'd be glad to
incorporate it.

Phil
