    Hello all.

    Thanks for the spiffy tool.

    I've just gotten it up and running on my system and plan to get our team using it very soon.  If you're interested or are keeping track, here are my details:
    - CodeStriker v1.6.4
    - Windows XP Pro
    - indigo Perl 5.6.1.626
    - Apache web server
    - mysql v3.23.53
    - no Bugzilla connection yet (in work)
    - no CVS (we do all VSS)

    My question... has anyone else worked with CodeStriker in a similar environment?  For example, how about VSS integration of any kind?

    My comments/suggestions... some earlier comments I saw and agreed with are 1)  comment status/severity  and 2) batched comments (sending mutliple comments in a single email rather than each individually, as an option).

    I don't have a *lot* of extra time but would be glad to help if possible.

    Thanks again!
    Don Smith

      Hi there,

      Thanks for the message.  As far as I'm aware, you're the first person who has reported running codestriker under Windows.  Did you have any issues with configuration?  I'd be interested to here.

      Getting to VSS - the modules of interest will be in the Codestriker/Repository package.  You'll need to create a new module for VSS - check out CvsWeb.pm and CvsLocal.pm as examples.

      The trick will be defining methods which all us to retrieve data given a specific filename and revision number.

      The other thing is what does VSS do for creating "diffs"?
      Does it have its own format?
