First post, so please bear with me. ;-)

Is this true in all cases? I build subversion with BDB support, but
without mod_dav_svn and in the tests.log I can easily identify tests
for the client part and the filesystem part, but not any tests via HTTP.

Are they done implicitly with some other tests? Or else, which test
should I see in my tests.log? (I presume that the server output is
simulated, given that I have no server compiled).

Or did I get it all wrong?



PS: Though, access via HTTP does work in the end, of course.
