The Perl version of the script runs svnlook and parses the output. It
also has a logic error (which is unlikely to bite) and is not very
efficient. There is limited scope for improvement to the Perl script so
I wrote a Python script which uses the Subversion Python language
bindings to directly query the repository. This script is much more
efficient than the Perl one. There is also scope for another major leap
in efficiency which I will get round to coding sometime.

Why Python? It appears to be favoured by the Subversion developers and
there were plenty of examples of how to use the Python language bindings
at the level I needed. And I need to get to understand Trac which is
written in Python and this was an opportunity to get to grips with the

There are instructions in the script on how to get it working on Unix
like systems and on Windows.
