Good idea, but I'm not sure that the contents of SVNService.zip is public
domain enought (however, I think the binary is safe).

A Microsoft copyright notice occurs (C 1993-1997)in the heading of
service.h. and service.c (wich is a modified MS file). Is service.c
something we are aloved to have in the contrib area? service.h should
not be any problem, it's a VC compiler related include file if I recall

Three more things:
1) The binary in the zip file probably have to go elswhere because
binaries should not be in the repository - and I don't want diffrent
versions of a binary compiled from one source. It can be placed in the
same place as the svnpath binary (which will be obsolete soon, Inno
Setup will do it 100%) wich is currently:


This directory is actually named "Development snapshots of Windows

2) Is it enough to just include the following files in the contrib area
(or are all the files in SVNService.zip needed)?


  ...and exclude the following ones?

3) Would 'contrib/win-svnservice' be ok in the trunk?
