Hi Nick and all,

> It is on my todo list to pull in boxi somehow - any help????

I'm not sure what you mean by "pull in", but I'm very happy to
on making Boxi build on native win32 and work with boxwin.

Since Boxi calls the Box Backup libraries when communicating with the=20
server, it would probably be enough to replace the supplied=20
boxbackup-0.09.tgz with a similar tarball of Boxwin source, fix any=20
conflicts in boxbackup.patch, and then fix any remaining Win32=20
incompatibilities in Boxi. The last shouldn't be too hard, as it already

builds and (almost) works under Cygwin :-)

But I haven't tried it yet. Does it seem like a reasonable way to
Or did I misunderstand the question?

Cheers, Chris.
