Re: .Mac?

Ashley is right, yes you could place the repository on an idisk via .mac and in turn server the mounted volume via apache or neon or some other capable webserver, but IMHO there isn't really a compelling reason to do it.

Of course if you've gotten this far and deployed your own web server the why not just use svn in lieu of .mac?

One thing you could use .mac for would be a way of backing up your repository but your mileage will definitely vary.
