That sounds like a real "Catch-22". If you build the app with the MS
Tools, then you somewhat limit who can contribute. If you use the
bare-bones Windows API then it is hard for anyone to add even very basic
features. Since TSVN already requires VS .NET I would have thought that
requiring the MS Tools would be the better way to go. It would seem to me
that TBlame has a fairly finite feature set. Once it is written, there is
not a lot that will need to be done to it in the future, therefore having
it able to be easily "hacked" by others seems to have little long term
benefit. I could see where something like TMerge has room for a lot of
longterm innovations and tweaks to be added, but TBlame seems like it
would be pretty static. I suppose someone could rethink the graphics
every couple of years, but the basic app should always be the same.

BTW, do the new Express editions of the compilers come with everything you
would need to develop TSVN? It seems to have all of the .NET stuff, not
sure if it also comes with MFC/ATL. I am not sure what the price is going
to be, I think I heard $99 or less.
