Re: Feature Request: clients shouldn't store auth-creds

I have followed the discussion a bit and I like to suggest the

Make the svn system supporting native kerberos (not PAM becourse of the
plain text password floating through the network).

I would suggest NTLM and SPNEGO auth mechanism
(http://modgssapache.sorceforge.net. I know this works actually only
with MS InternetExplorer but since Apple for example supports
subversion in the developer tools they may then be tempted to support
NTLM in Safari, too. Probably Mozilla and the Mozilla based Linux
Browsers will follow.

Before I start recherching I would like to know what you think about
this idea in general.

Lit.: O'Reilly: Kerberos The Definite Guide, page 145ff, page 146 about
MS NTLM authentication and SPNEGO. Its only a few lines though.
