Karl:

I would be more than happy to do that. Don't have time right now (have
actually been running back and forth in-between e-mails being late to
various classes, hehe), but you can expect something later tonight or
tomorrow.

(for reference, as I consider it partially obsolete, and brevity, so I don't
use a second e-mail, here is a response to your previous post, also cited
below)

That's because most of these issues were _already_ flushed out in previous
e-mails. The point of my complaint isn't "I just downloaded Subversion and
it doesn't do these few things so I'm complaining about them... obviously no
one cared enough to notice them". Brane and other developers (occasionally
myself a whiel back) have analyzed many of the problems in the Win32 builds
in the past. I can rehash a lot of information, but I'm really not going to
be bringing that much new to the table. The main one where I might have
something new to say from the abbreviated list in my e-mail was the case
sensitivity issue (which I can't remember a previous conversation about off
the top of my head).

To note, the points about dsp files not being updated spawned from e-mails I
noticed (while doing a search for "win32") from Patrik Husfloen. Take a
look at "build error on win32" (which wasn't even replied to), and "rev 2062
does not build on win32" (which resulted in a few, semi-humourous comments
from Brane, Greg, and yourself), both of which had to do with out-of-date
dsp files.

Brane's humerous response to the latter:
<quote sender="Brane">
Dam'! We need that automatic .dsp generator, and soon. Either that, or I
have to somehow link my Staff of Zot to the commit mailing list and fry
anyone who doesn't update the .dsp's when new files are added.

Sincerely,
