Re: New web-based Subversion server management tool

This would definitely be a great idea. I was infact working on a similar
concept for one of our internal tools and I am desperately trying to get the
Ruby bindings built on windows to achieve that. I am using Ruby on Rails.
Most of this project is still vaporware. In fact, I am still working on a
proof of concept which can only be possible if I ever manage to get the ruby
swig wrapper built. :-) We have some Windows specific functionality. I am
using John Lam's www.rubyclr.com to bridge the gap. I am not sure how this
would scale but I just hope that it works. If not, I would drop the RubyCLR
idea and simply work around it.

Your ideas are most welcome.
