I'm evaluating Subversion for my department and would like to get some clarification/comments on a few items. I have subversion installed on a windows box and have used it both locally and remotely (svnservice -d). I've read/scanned most of the book and the FAQ so hopefully I have not overlooked any existing answers. Your feed back is greatly appreciated.
1) I need clarification about where a repository can be placed. The subversion book indicates "Do not create your repository on a network share-it cannot exist on a remote filesystem such as NFS, AFS, or Windows SMB." I gather that this means that means that one always has to place the Berkly DB on the same machine
2) How does all of this work when one wants to expose a repository to outside user who will access it thought he public internet? The server has to sit in the DMZ and
3) Is there anyway to tie existing security infrastructure (LDAP, networking OS, etc.) authentication mechanisms into svnserve or does one pretty much have to maintain separate id/passwords?
