RE: Support for maintain full version control of OpenOffice.org files (and other compressed files)

My vote goes for svn not messing with my zip files. If your office suite of
choice stores files in proprietary binary formats, it's not up to svn to
interpret/convert them before storing them. Should it also convert Word docs
to text before saving them? The fact that zip is a well-known proprietary
binary format doesn't make it less proprietary or less binary.

I'll go back to sleep now.

I'd like this feature, too (for OpenOffice.org files). Is there a
link available which would enable me to vote for the feature? ;-)
