RE: subversion and code peer reviews

Sorry. Should have included the svn version.

$ svn --version
svn, version 1.1.2 (r12471)
   compiled Dec 30 2004, 15:47:22

I knew about the --diff-cmd options. And yes, TSVN will handle external diff
programs. Difficult to do that via email from svn though.

svn can use 3rd-party GUI diff programs too. See the --diff-cmd and
--diff3-cmd args. I'm sure TSVN allows this also.... just write a wrapper
script.

What version of TSVN? The latest release (1.1.2) is much faster at status.
