Re: browsing the repository

ra_dav and WebDAV is the primary access mechanism for an SVN repository. A
high-level SCM app could use DAV methods against the server, and calls into
the SVN libraries when needed.

Second question, of course, is how complete our DAV implementation? For 1.0,
we'll make it "complete enough [for the SVN client to talk to the server]"
plus any low-hanging fruit for interoperability. SVN 2.0 will provide full
WebDAV/DeltaV interop.

Cheers,
