SourceSafe to XML Export and Search Tool

Last updated 5/10/05 - version 0.86

SS2XML is a simple set of utilities to extract all the meta-information (not the file contents) from a Visual SourceSafe database and store it in an XML format. This was written primarily to facilitate several types of searches that could not be done directly in SourceSafe. This is a work in progress, but hopefully, you will find it useful.

I'm also working on some SourceSafe administrative tools to help manage user privileges. An early version of this feature is included.

It's Open Source and licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0. Feel free to use it and modify it for your own needs. If you add features, or (especially) if you find bugs, please let me know.
