In order to compile Subversion bindings for Python 2.4, you would need
to use Visual Studio.NET to compile Subversion and its dependencies
(e.g. APR).

We normally build Subversion using Visual Studio 6, so we do not build
Python 2.4 bindings. However, if a volunteer were to build Python 2.4
bindings using Visual Studio.NET, it would be much appreciated.

Branko Čibej has mentioned in the past that he feels it is dangerous
to mix libraries compiled with different versions of Visual Studio on
the same system. I don't agree. Personally, I often mix DLLs compiled
with different versions of Visual Studio, and I have never seen any
problems.

If a volunteer were to build Python 2.4 bindings using Visual
Studio.NET, I would be happy to test them, and check whether there are
any compatibility problems. I expect that they will work fine.

Cheers,

David
