Re: tarball download

Well I've only been thinking about it so far. The viewvc python code
looks simple enough, but tar source code is much more complex. I
haven't looked at svn's export implementation yet - so, still at the
stage of scoping the work. But I expect the command would look
something like

svntar -cvf release5.tar svn://localhost/repos/projectname

Or for my purposes, exporting to stdout tar:

svntar -cvf - svn://localhost/repos/projectname

Anyway, like I said, its just an idea I have :-)

Nick.
