Of course, you need to know to look in %APPDATA%\Subversion\README.txt before you can read the README to look there. :) Actually, I did find this but I was confused about how to set things up on the server side for all users.

This was my actual main confusion. I was trying to get something to work that doesn't exist! I'll be looking forward to this feature when it comes around.

Or any large group of developers that need a bunch of non-standard tools to do builds. We have a system to deploy out many tools like grep, vi, tee, gawk, etc. that our build system uses. Would be kind of lame if they all had to go out and find such tools themselves! Since I know they all have vi.exe installed it would be nice to set that as the default editor for SVN. However, they would still need to be able to override that if they desire to use a specific editor.

None the less, now that I understand I can't do what I thought I could do I think I can still rig something up that will provide the same effect.

Thanks to everyone for the responses on this thread. Awesome community!
