I'm glad to help out where I can, though, fortunately or
unfortunately, I guess it depends upon your perspective, I've been
windows free for close to a decade now :)

Maybe we could collect these into a sort of RM HOWTO for svn?
That way, when the torch needs to be passed, we actually have a torch
to pass :)

I'll gladly work on collecting questions/answers and organizing them
into a sort of manual/HOWTO type thingy. Or, I can co-ordinate
getting them into the FAQ, it others believe that's a better location.
Oh, wait, don't we have an svn wiki somewhere? That would be a great
place for some of this :)

Do you still want these from the other two of us at this time?
And if so, are you using standard DES or MD5 in the .htpasswd files?
