Please take a look at the svn-admin CGI I posted to this list about
two weeks ago. It had a concept of templates, which can define initial
files/dirs. In addition, it can set template properties to those
objects. It also registers itself as hook script and offers an UI to
configure commit-acces and commit-email settings. It is not ready for
production usage yet, but I think it has enough functionality to show
the concept I had in mind.

Solving the template-issue with a cgi has one additional benefit: you
no more need to log into the server just to create a repo or to fiddle
around with the access permissions.

I would like to adapt this script to your requirements so
that it could
find its way into the tools subdirectory of the subversion
distribution.
But unfortunatly, I received no comments about it. Instead you core
developers waste your time and duplicate already existing
functionality.

Maybe the core-team should not waste their time with things like that?
