I've been seeing these non-fatal errors in my logfile for a while
too. I think they have something to do with ra_dav_get_baseline_info
making all sorts of existence queries on different URLs; it's
perfectly fine for an existence check to come up empty, but the server
shouldn't log it as an error.

Is there any way to make mod_dav_svn recognize the difference between
an *unexpected* failure to find a resource, vs. an unimportant
existence check?
