Re: has anyone configured ViewVC

Well, besides installing it and setting up the viewvc.conf file (which I
stole from http://oss.segetech.com/bugz-svn-wiki/viewvc.conf and
modified slightly for browsing multiple repositories), all I had to add
to my apache2 config (besides some authentication related stuff) was,

    ScriptAlias /viewvc /my/path/to/viewvc.cgi

No copying files anywhere, or AllowOverride directives.
