Interesting point here.
In SVN, the users will be records on the HTTP server. If we spin out a hook
to call a script, then the email address will need to be looked up from
somewhere. Invariably, there will be *no* user accounts on the SVN server,
so user@svnhost is not going to work.
Just another thought...
Oh. Stream of consciousness. It would be possible for us to formalize a
collection on the server which has resources corresponding to each user. On
those resources, we could attach properties.
We can then create an SVN:email property on those resources (or possibly use
some standardized ones from Dublin Core).
Note that this would *only* be about recording per-user information. There
would be no authentication information stored in there.
[ well. hmm. actually, we damn well could. mod_dav_svn could easily hook the
Apache auth process and look up a password out of those resources (as a
sort of "default" mechanism, but the admin could always select other
Apache auth systems). and hell, those resources are just going to be
another BDB table ]
