While this posting represents a slight digression from my usual comments, I feel the need to record this for future reference...
During work today I found myself needing to add my SVN server as a new Windows Service. Many a time have I hunted around for the method of doing this and, many a time, have I failed.
Today, we have the answer (for Windows XP at least):
sc create svn binpath= ""C:Program Filessvnbinsvnserve.exe" --service --root "C:Documents and SettingsSubversion Repository""
