Portability..

Hi,

  I've been lurking on the list for a couple of days now,
 having read the archives on the subversion website.

  One quick question I have; Whats the intended portability
 of the client?

  Right now I'm using CVS in a mixed environment, (Linux server
 for the repository, and Windows NT clients), ideally I'd like to
 switch away from CVS, and subversion seems to be going in the right
 direction..
 
  So, I downloaded the current source and got it "running" on
 Linux - but no joy on NT.

  I tried to use the "autogen.sh" script under the Cygwin
 environment, with all the correct packages installed, eg.
 autoconf, and automake, without success.

  I'd be willing to help get the thing built, and working on
 Windows platforms .. if that would be required?
 (Ideally I'd like to see some sort of configure script written
 in perl, perhaps tmake; but any workable, maintainable, solution
 would do, I've no particular bias ;)

  Other than that I'm keen to contribute to the project in
 any way thats helpfull/usefull.. (Frustratingly I see
 the job of the Emacs interface has been taken ;)

  .. While I remember .. one of my, smaller, gripes with
 CVS is the way the password is transmitted, in barely,
 modified plaintext - I'm assuming that subversion will
 be using some for of cryptographically secure hash for
 transmitting details?
