Re: Recommended build method for SVN?

Do you really need to be rebuilding svn trunk code daily, in order for
your own project to make progress? If not, why not just have *one*
person (you?) build trunk every month or so, and distribute the
libraries via svn.

I can't believe I'm recommending this, since I've spent years telling
people to only put 'non-derivable' stuff (i.e. code) into version
control... but building svn on Windows is Really Really Hard.
