Re: Using WinXP Environment Variables in Servers Config File

There is a way to automatically map a drive letter to %APPDATA% when
you log into Windows. Unfortunately, I do not know how to do this.

However, I would think the TSVN team would want to preprocess paths,
before passing them to the SVN libraries, to expand %APPDATA% (and
maybe %HOMEPATH% and/or %USERPROFILE%, as well) as this is preferred
place for applications running under Windows to save user specific
settings, preferences, etc.
