Thanks for the explanation about attachments on this list, Julian. I
tried to find a way to tell Windows 7 to treat the .patch files more
as .txt .... no luck yet. I use Eudora as my email client and the OS
is Windows 7. If I rename the files to *.patch.txt, then they might
go through differently.
Meanwhile for anyone interested, the actual patch files are available
online at the following address, along with a Windows installer for
the compiled binary of the svn client including the
patch/feature. That should make it easy for people to test it (on
Windows) and then comment more meaningfully on the usefulness. I'm
fairly convinced the feature is not needed on Linux.
I am planning to leave those files online until it is clear whether
v1.7 with Working Copy Next Generation "WCNG" makes the whole issue
moot. Looking forward to testing that further down the track.
Sorry for the delay in reply, and many thanks to all the developers
on this list for your work on subversion.
