Ok. Good. *Should* work. Maybe someone else running the stable build can

I don't think that matters too much. SVN should be compatible over the
1.x-range, and I have heard no issues like this one before. I'm sure
that there are lots of people running stable Debian servers around here.

Indeed it would. Again a question of if the SVN API would allow us to do
that, and I'm not really qualified to answer.
But then again, *mostly* the server version is of minor importance.

Username: guest

You can use that script right away or build a custom one based on it.

As you have read the SVN manual I'm sure you will! You can use the
Command Line Cross Reference from the TSVN-manual to get you on your
(But I'd suggest simply trying to figure it out using the SVN-manual.)
(And yes, commandline on windows IS kinda awkward, but fully functional
for SVN purposes...)

That's my preferred setup as well.

Sounds like a good policy =)

Hmm. That could be an idea. But then we would have TSVN, "SVNClient" and
SVNServer errors. Would that maybe be confusing for the user?
...but maybe the positive aspects outweigh the negative here. Comments
from any of you other guys? Would it be worth the effort to identify
where the actual error originates?
