It looks like you haven't tried a long time. The build instructions
for TSVN are very clear and complete. If you do step by step what the
build.txt file tells you, you would be able to build TSVN.

It looks as if you just used Macromedias example project files and
changed some strings. Then you started (my guess is you tried for half
an hour, not much longer) to copy/paste something together and then
gave up.
I know it's much easier to just say: "you can do that much better, so
you do the job" instead of trying yourself. But that's not how things
work here.

There are some problems here:

- I don't have Dreamweaver. Buying it just to write that plugin is out
of the question
- Even if I would have a license and could at least test the plugin,
it wouldn't be stable. Because I don't do web editing and would
therefore not use Dreamweaver on a daily basis.
- I have enough to do with TSVN. And you can say "it looks like an
easy thing to do" as long as you want - you couldn't even get it to
compile so it can't be that "easy to do".
