Hey, Magnus. I'm a touch confused about the above. Are you saying
that right now, on Win32, the URL *will* look like
'file://localhost/C:\svnroot\HelloWorld' and shouldn't, or that it
*should* look like that and currently doesn't?

I'll present an apology to you for this, as I had full intentions of
reviewing the patches you sent. Unfortunately I got tied up doing
other things. Right now, I fully expect SVN not to build under Win32
at all. Files are still getting moved around a bit, and I've not even
bothered trying to keep Win32 in sync with the rest of the world.
When next I get a chance to do so, and when I'm near a Win32 box, I
will try to get your patches reviewed and hopefully integrated.
However, I must admit that this may not be very soon. The CollabNet
Three (Karl, Ben, and myself) are moving to a new office this weekend,
and I'm not sure how long it will take to get everything in at least a
work-ready state.

Perhaps Branko or another Win32 user would be so kind as to do a
little patch review?

Regardless of that, please forgive us for being less than hospitable.
Your attention to the Win32 side of things is appreciated, and we
certainly don't mean to fail in encouraging you in that.
