Here's another suggestion: create an alternate URL that loads through
the normal web server. e.g.

http://yourserver.com/svn/repos1/html/sampledir/samplefile.htm -> loads
through svn, shows the source file.

http://yourserver.com/sampledir/samplefile.htm -> loads through a normal
web server process.

Then you can on the server side create a symbolic link to "sampledir" in
your root web directory, or set up a <Location> block in httpd.conf.

Hi, guys,
This is my first post to the list. I just set up Subversion last week,
and I must say I like it very much. Can't wait to see the feature set
get more developed, and adopted by more client interfaces. Here's a
question of my own:
Can you retrieve a particular (previous) version of a file stored in an
SVN repository using mod_dav_svn, either through a generic webDAV or
HTTP client? I'm wondering if you can grab an earlier version of a file
without installing a proper SVN client, just by using a modified URL.
Cheers,
