Yup. We'll have a Subversion-enabled ViewCVS probably in the next few
months. It won't have near the functionality, but it will definitely have
richer browsing than Subversion's built in browser. We've already started
some modifications to ViewCVS for this.

As I mentioned in another note, you need to be careful with the PHP stuff
(and server side includes), but you should be able to do this.

[ following Ben's note about svn:mime-type ]

WebDAV is a *protocol* for authoring and managing content on a server. To
that extent, it could be *used* by the FrontPage application and any server
it talks to. But WebDAV isn't an app: it doesn't replace tools like

No idea. I've never tried to set up the new httpd-ldap module. If there
isn't a README or some such, then send a note to dev@httpd.apache.org.
However, make it very clear you're asking about 2.0, httpd-ldap, etc. Note
that it appears to be a lack of documentation. If it sounds like a simple
"how do I configure this?" question, then you'll get bounced to user forums,
and I doubt they'll know how to deal with Apache 2 and httpd-ldap.
