I know that - i have similar settings for http, to have anonymous access to
other repositories, but my https config says
AuthName "repos private"
Require group private
now when i run
svn list https://svn.home/repos
I get asked for the password of the logged in user and then for
username/password - and it works. But import doesn't, that is what confused
me. That special repository "repos" has no anonymous http access (there
isn't even an entry in httpd.conf) because it contains the history of the
server setup, nothing anybody else but the admin should be able to see. So
"logging in" with svn list works but logging in to commit doesn't, that's
what i meant.

Hehe, I can live with that, but I thought this is unwanted behaviour.
According to your answer list should, in my case, only work when --username
is specified, right? Or is there a flaw in my apache config i am not able
