Thanks for your interest.

Parts. The first (and most of the fifth) sections[1] are primarily for
Windows folks. The third and sixth sections are only useful to people
working on Subversion and APR themselves (they set up the coding style,
install folding for STATUS, and run 'ctags' with some useful flags). The
second and fourth sections (':SvnRediff' and 'svn:log') are potentially

':SvnRediff' opens a buffer on 'svn diff' output and remembers the 'svn
diff' invocation, and the 'svn:log' section sets up an autocommand that,
when 'svn ci' is run (without -m or -F), splits a window on the diff being

The comparison to the 301KB psvn.el is flattering. Those 57 lines don't
even have a name and are not packaged as a standalone script (they make
some assumptions[2] about their environment). They don't attempt to be
a general-purpose Subversion package, either; they are nothing more or
less than two sections of code that I have found useful.

I can fix the packaging and standalone-ness, if there is interest; but
please don't paint those excerpts as something they aren't.

I do have copyright on it. The Apache License v2 works for you?



[1] 'Section' starts in a line starting with exactly two double quotes.
Open the file in Vim and you'll see...

[2] Most noticeably, I accidentally left in at least 2 calls to functions
from my vimrc that aren't included in the file. Sorry about that; I'll
fix it.
