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.
