As you know I work on DasBlog and SourceForge uses CVS for Source Control.
If you want to get the LATEST source for DasBlog and compile it yourself on Windows:
If you aren't a dev with check in privileges, but you want contribute a patched file:
If you're me, and you want to apply a patch file: (or if you're not me and you just want to apply a standard DIFF/PATCH file on Windows without pulling your hair out)
Now you can use CVS on Windows and play with CVS patches/diffs, making and patching with ease and grace. Enjoy.
FYI, If you want to get deeper into DasBlog development and start including patches, you'll want to subscribe to the checkin mail for DasBlog's CVS so you'll know what's changing when.
