For a person who says he's not good at svn, you sure know your stuff.
:)

Regarding my previous message, I think I jumped the gun a bit.
While the information still stands, I should clarify a bit.

change-svn-wc-format.py is a Python script, as I mentioned. So
you do need to download Python (either from python.org or
from activestate.com). Then you can run the script.

Once you get Python installed, you run the script as follows:
(Assuming your working copy is at C:\repos\wc and you're trying
to create a v1.4 format file)

c:\python\bin\python.exe change-svn-wc-python.py c:\repos\wc "1.4"

(I'm not sure if it's c:\python\bin\python.exe. Wherever you can
find python.exe, use that. If it's in your path, then it's simple:

python.exe change-svn-wc-python.py c:\repos\wc "1.4"

(Another bonus is if .py files are associated with Python.exe;
then, just run the script and the arguments.)

I hope this helps.

Edmund
