I like the idea of doing the visuals through xml/xsl. It gives you a lot of
power and allows subversion to focus on what subversion does.

Most of my business application run on a windwos box using asp .net. I
already have standard templates for my web applications and it will be a
simple thing to just point to an xml data source and do some basic


I know you would eat my head for this :-) but IMHO the web based interface
which mod_dav_svn provides should include a full repository viewer with
features such as that ViewCVS provides.

What is the use of a HTML interface to the repository? Quick and dirty way
of browsing files? I think a repository maintenance software should feature
a ViewCVS-like interface in the HTML interface.

You can argue from perception that we'd be spoiling the "simple look" of the
current interface, but a featureful repository viewer should be part of the
Subversion distribution. Don't you think it would be convenient to provide
such an interface for users, rather than the current "simple look" ?
