Did you " See the documentation for details."???
" For other Unix-like operating systems, no single standard â€śkeychainâ€ť service exists. However, the Subversion client knows how to store passwords securely using the â€śGNOME Keyringâ€ť and â€śKDE Walletâ€ť services. Also, before storing unencrypted passwords in the ~/.subversion/auth/ caching area, the Subversion client will ask the user for permission to do so. Note that the auth/ caching area is still permission-protected so that only the user (owner) can read data from it, not the world at large. The operating system's own file permissions protect the passwords from other non-administrative users on the same system, provided they have no direct physical access to the storage media of the home directory, or backups thereof."
