I need to add:
As I cannot see which mail client you are using so you might work on
Windows or any other OS. To be honest, I never was able to bring
subversion with GeanyVC really up and running on Windows due some
serious issues with the OS I personally had. So if you are running
Windows, it should work pretty much the same as I mentioned before, but
I'm afraid I cannot go into more detail and give some support. All what
I can say, you will need to get the command line interface for Windows.
With tools like tortoise it will most properly not work - Maybe posting
a how to in such case (you are working on Windows) once you have figured
it out would be cool.
