I think the Subversion team should re-think their "source release
only" policy. Subversion is NOT easy to build on Windows, and there
are so many things that can be tweaked (e.g. version of BDB, Apache
stuff, etc.) that I'm left wondering if I did build it how different
would it be from what the devs were testing with.

I understand that they simply don't have the resources to build for
every flavour of unix supported, but Win32 covers a lot of machines
with a single build.

 From what I can tell somebody on the dev team has to build it on
Windows before signing off on the release tarball.. so why not make a
zip of the Win32 binaries available at the same time the source it
released?
