RE: SCC API provider

Arild,

If I offended you, I apologize. I didn't mean that there's anything
specifically wrong with AnkhSvn or that there are bugs. AnkhSvn is an
excellent way for VS.NET 2002/2003 users to get around the SCC API
limitations and have a robust source control system for their code.

All I meant to say was that that doesn't help users of any other IDE that
use the SCC API. By building a SCC API provider for Subversion, users of
Delphi, VisualAge, HomeSite, RationalRose, and VC6 (among others) will all
be able to use Subversion from their IDE without any changes to their system
except for a couple of registry entries. The SCC API is (unfortunately)
becoming a more common standard, and I want people to have a better source
control system to use than VSS.

In all honesty, I'm more comfortable with a good text editor like jEdit and
the svn command-line tools than in an IDE, but I currently have no choice
but to work in an IDE for a living.
