Do you mind CollabNet having copyright on it, as long as the license
terms are the same as the other files in Subversion? I ask only so we
can keep things simple and not have to talk to the legal department --
just trying to keep obstacles to a minimum (personally, I don't care
who the copyright holder is as long as the code is Free :-) ).

Yup, I can see the convenience.

This is for a win32 GUI client, using VB, right? I'm thinking a dir
hierarchy something like this:


where the last two are new dirs that don't exist yet. You and Mark do
whatever you need to do under win32/. How does that sound, folks?

I realize that this makes the command-line client's location kind of
weird -- it's currently in subversion/subversion/client/, instead of
subversion/subversion/clients/cmdline/. That might want to be
rectified eventually.

The reason for separating them out is that there may be many clients,
and their maintenance/dev schedule is probably different from that of
the subversion core libraries. It probably depends on exactly who's
volunteering their time to what. In the CVS world, all the GUI
clients are maintained separately, in fact. I think it's great that
we'll distribute GUI clients with Subversion, though.

I've CC'd this to Chris Clarke <chris@collab.net>, who I know has
strong thoughts on Subversion GUI client interface design. Chris,
feel free to weigh in (preferably on this list), talk with Bill and
Mark about what you don't like in some of the CVS GUI's and how
Subversion can get it right.

Note: I imagine the people currently working on the wc and repository
libraries won't spend many cycles on the gui clients yet. Got to get
this other stuff working first. :-)
