I've Milestone 2 to Thursday, Dec. 7th, hope that doesn't ruin
anyone's holidays :-). It's because a couple of the full-time
developers got assigned temporary (but high-priority) non-Subversion
work by their respective employers, so that has to affect Subversion
development a bit. The goals for M2 are unchanged, however.
Also, we're starting to think about GUI clients for Macintosh/Windows.
The command-line client currently under development will run under
Windows, but many users will naturally want something like WinCVS.
And I doubt the command-line client will even work on a Mac. :-)
I've checked in an item about this in TASKS:
4. Macintosh/Windows GUI clients.
Once libsvn_client API is finalized (which, for a sufficiently
loose definition of "final", should be by Milestone 2 on Dec 7th),
it will be usable by any client, not just the command-line client.
I'm not sure this argues definitively for native clients written in
C for Mac and Windows, though that's certainly one way to get it
done. Perhaps one client could be written for both platforms,
using a Java class that links to the C libsvn_client API?
Thoughts? Interested parties?
