i am one of the complainers about this disclosure. i want to host svn
for people. but they should not know where the repos is on the disk. i
think an administrator can get the needed informations from the url
("svn info"). so i think a user/administrator can get all needed
informations to solve the problems. Why does the path needs to be
exposed to the user?
