I cannot test it, as I do not have a computer with the Windows
operating system. It would be best not to send such large attachments
of such limited interest to mailing lists of a primarily discussion
nature with such a wide distribution; better to put it on a web page
and send a link to that so interested parties can take a look.

For the list's illumination, here's what's in the archive:


@echo SVN Pre Revision Property Change


@echo SVN Post Revision Property Change
%~p0\..\..\SVNArchive\SVNArchive.Backup.bat %1 %2


@echo SVN Post Commit
%~p0\..\..\SVNArchive\SVNArchive.Backup.bat %1 *

%~p0 sure looks odd to me, but I'm no Windows batch script programmer
so I don't know. On Unix, you definitely have to list the complete
path to the script or executable, because the hook is run without an
environment. Perhaps it's the same way on Windows. (So call C:\path\to
\SVNArchive.Backup.bat for example.)

The echo statements may not be going anywhere, by the way. On Unix,
if you want a pre-commit hook to output anything, you must direct the
output to stderr and exit with a nonzero code. I don't know how to do
that on Windows though.
