We are starting a project that will involve experimenting with the 
source code of RAT and VIC.  Basically, we want to extend the 
configuration options that are available in the command line and 
start-up scripts to allow more control over the various features when 
the tools are launched.  I can tell you more about that later if you are 
interested, but my question is about the development environment.

What compiler is required to build RAT and VIC on the Windows and UNIX 
platforms?  Is it just the GNU tools for UNIX?  For Windows I understand 
that the developers might be using Visual Studio .NET.  Is this 
correct?  If so, if we have to go out and buy a new version of this 
software, does it matter which of the 3 editions we get? Can we do it 
all with the Professional edition, or do we need one of the Enterprise 

Another question concerns the CVS repository.  There appears to be two 
locations where the source code for RAT and VIC are stored:

/ag-media/rat or /ag-media/vic
/ag-rat or /ag-vic

Which of these is the current project?

We hope to be able offer anything useful that we come up with back to 
the project.
