Then I will start working with MinGW (the MinGW system are reliable and
well tested and the MinGW philosophy and license seem to fit subversion
very well) are and I can make regular packages of Subversion for
Windows, but it might take one or two days and I need some help and

* svn for Windows looks for diff and diff3 in
  C:\Program Files\bla\bla..
  Can someone alter the code and make svn look in svn's path and
  then in the PATH? Hard coding of "C:\Program Files.." are a pain
  in the but for non english users. It's better to stick with the
  PATH and include the diff* programs and the related libs in the
  installer package.
* If some one have managed to compile svn, berkley and friends
  with MinGW, Visual C 5.0 and/or the free Borland compiler,
  let me know, and give me info on how you did it
* Where should i upload the packages? I can use josander.net/svn/
  (in http and ftp)but the domain host is not very reliable
  (alabanza with it's bogus name server system)

I think it would be nice to provide 3 Windows distroes:
* One complete with svn, full documentation in HTML format, diff*
  (and libs if cygwin) and the Berkley db package etc.
* One minimalitsic with svn, docs, and diff.
* One additional with berkley and other extra stuff

And it would be fine if someone can send me mod-dav-svn.so or a link so I
can do some testing.

Thanks to both Branko and Karl for the nice responces about this - and to
all of you for your nice and polite answers and behaviour on

It's an honour to do something for Subversion - a program that will give
me much pleasure in the near future.
