Issues and Ideas

We should have a much easier way for users to immediately make use of their favourite diff tool, not requiring them to search the net for solutions or figure out how to write a wrapper script. If we were to ship a set of wrappers for a few popular tools on each popular platform, that would be one feasible solution.

Want to be able to configure Subversion to use an external diff tool for files whose svn:mime-type indicates non-text content (such as 'application/msword'). Issue #2447.
