RE: Questions about Subversion...

The next logical step in the question about AD users is whether you could
simplify and manage the permissions by using an AD group? So that if you
wanted to add a new user of the repository, you simply add them to the AD
group and they now have access to the directories the group has been granted
access rights to. Does that make sense and is it possible?

 
Thanks!
Rory

I think it can be done with any Apache install with the correct modules;
VisualSVN packages it all up and proves a nice admin interface to make it
all much, much easier.
