Please go ahead and commit any of the changes you've posted for
Windows - I don't have time to look over them at the moment. In
general it should be okay to commit; there can always be discussion
afterwards if there are problems. The only time I imagine there could
be problems with multiple commits at once is if there are conflicts
between different people's work (I've found that svn can't even handle
a simple merge conflict on a ChangeLog, at least I haven't found an
easy way of doing so so far), so I will try to post in future if I am
planning any large-scale changes that could conflict with other
commits. (I will note I am not planning any such large-scale changes
in the immediate future.)
