Re: The Subversion GUI Issue

Last January I took the current WinCVS stuff and slowly began converting
over to Subversion....I haven't had time to work on it since then but I
got about 40 revisions in to it. As soon as I figure out my apache 2.0.40
server problem with the shared memory then you can take a look at it at
the http://summersoft.fay.ar.us:81/ URL. It is cross platform and will
compile on Linux/Unix, Windows, and MAC.
