RE: [TSVN] Regression Testing of TSVN

Actually I used Final Builder for years, but switched this year to
Automated Build Studio which I like better. But both are fine products.
Neither are open source however so I wouldn't recommend them for this
project. I also think the are both overpriced. At $99 they would rule
the build market and no one in their right mind would even consider the
current open source alternatives on Windows platforms.

Anyway always good to meet another Delphi dweeb. ;-)

And:- FinalBuilder sounds like the ideal "Windows Platform" tool for
doing the nightly build, and possibly free up the need for two
consecutive runs.

I downloaded the Tortoise source today to take a look at the TSVNCache
and related code, given that it's been a little problematic. Me not
being very C fluent took one look and closed it up again. Ah Delphi,
it's so much easier to read.
