If you have an official IT "department", then surely they're aware
that Windows XP is not a server and should not be used in this
capacity. If they really are looking toput your repository on an XP
box as a "server" then everyone involved in that decision ought to be

BTW, although it may not be as cost-effective or fast as a *NIX server
(not to mention the pain of having to shoehorn almost any hook script
you find on the internet into it because Windows lacks so many things
one takes for granted on *NIX, like bash, Python, etc.), Subversion
runs very well on Windows Server 2003.
