And therefore Apache will never issue an authentication challenge to
get a username from the svn client. mod_dav_svn uses a default
username of anonymous when accessing the repository, unless Apache
is able to provide it with an authenticated username.

 Do I need to setup Apache authentication to get away from anonymous
 ? We have a small development team (3) and the web server can only
 be accesed inside our firewall, so I didn't see a need for a
 password file.

Maybe there's a way to make Apache issue a username only challenge,
and then the svn client can just respond with the owner of the client
process...
