This is a project to build reliable .NET bindings for the Subversion version-control system libraries. This is a continuation of the SubversionSharp library initially created by Softec and released under the LGPL.
Even though this is a "fork" of SubversionSharp, I have spoken with the author of that project and we plan to eventually merge the projects back together. I am more interested in full .NET 2.0 compatibility and eventually creating a fully-managed client library that does not expose any "unsafe" code to users. I also want to regularly publish Win32 binary zipfiles which contain all the DLLs necessary to access the Subversion API from .NET 2.0 (including the Subversion client library and all dependencies such as APR, Neon, etc.)
Creating this "temporary fork" allows me more flexibility in continuing development in these areas. I do not intend to change the namespace of any existing classes or assemblies.
Project Status (and How You Can Help!) We have released a zipfile (see below) containing a binary Win32 build of the Subversion 1.4 client library, its dependencies, and the AprSharp and SubversionSharp managed assemblies which fully expose the Subversion 1.4 client API. Note that other Subversion APIs, such as the RA (Repository Access, or "server") Layer are not implemented and we have no plans to implement them at this time.
The long-term goal for Svn.NET is to hide all unsafe methods from the public interface, and expose only a fully managed API. Consuming applications should not need to deal with the intricacies of the Subversion API.
However, in order to achieve this goal, the existing SvnClient library needs to have a complete suite of unit tests written, as well as better code documentation, in order to allow us to refactor parts of the CodeBase without breaking functionality. If you have C# experience and would like to help a bit on this project, writing a unit test or two is a great way to help!
