Hi Mathew,

I'm in the habit of getting DrScheme as an installer from the following URI:


I'd like to start using svn, which I have listed as bing from http://subversion.tigris.org/ in my cygwin installation, so that I can keep an up-to-date source version on my XP machine, and build my installation from source.  The benefit being that I wouldn't have to wait for the installers to be created when a bug is fixed.

However, this would be my first time using svn.  Do the good folks at PLT have a white paper on how to get a client svn setup for use with the PLT repsoistory and stay current automatically?  I'd appreciate anything you might have on this topic.

Also, my C compiler is in MS Visual Studio 2005.  Is this an acceptable development platform, or do I need to download that free express version I keep hearing about.  I also have gcc in the cygwin distribution, but I understand that if I compile under cygwin, my installlation of DrScheme would be labeled as operating under *nix, and I assume that would mean I would have to run DrScheme in X-Windows, or not at all.  I'm just not clear on that part.
