The SVN Server version should be no problem, but I'm not so sure that
the script will run 'as is' on Windows. I'm using it on Solaris. I've
actually used a previous version of that script which was distributed
on the users@ list years ago. I've had to tweak it a bit, and have
coded it to call "/usr/sbin/sendmail" directly (so no Mail::Sendmail
perl module). Apparently it has changed a bit since then, so I really
can't say much about that.

I suggest you try it out and see if you can get it working. Otherwise,
maybe you'll have to contact the developer via the Github project.
