RE: Adding LAN support to Subversion - Clarification

You are absolutely correct. Now please come to my workplace (Bldg 5307,
Redstone Arsenal, Huntsville AL) and beat that into the Network Nazis who
run the place.

Thus, I am attempting to reinvent the wheel.

To get back to my original question, how does one link a new file access
layer into Subverion?

Why are you trying to create so much work for yourself? :-)

Just run a real server process on the machine which contains the
repository. If apache is too big for you, use an svnserve daemon

The reason we have servers is so that you don't have to worry about
this kind of thing... and to allow concurrent accesses. Trying to add
a 'lockfile' to file:/// access is a poor reinvention of a wheel, and
won't even give you concurrency. With a real server process,
repository readers are *never* blocked, and writers are almost never
