RE: Subversion from Windows

G'day Michael,

I'm not if this is exactly what you're after, but one configuration
I've played with is to use PuTTY to tunnel port 3690 and then point my
SVN client to svn://localhost/repos/project.

This works fine, although it can be a bit of a pain if you want to be
able to switch between direct access (ie. svn://myserver/repos/project)
and SSH tunnelled access (ie. svn://localhost/repos/project).
