Just FYI, Hans, Subversion runs fine on XP. There's even a one-click 
installer that I can use :-) Also, TortoiseSVN - a client that manages 
your Subversion projects - integrates with your XP file manager, so it's 
all point and click, and drag and drop; highly recommended.

Even if you only use it to manage Patrick's updates it'll save you a ton 
of work, and make rolling back only a click away.

A good way to explore is just to download TortoiseSVN, then checkout 
something from a public Subversion repository.
