I think the original comment was that you need to /allow/ for a way for the OS
or external code to force a new log to be created (this is often accomplished
using signals, SIGHUP being a popular one). That way, logrotate (or whatever)
could rename the current file (which can be done while it is open) and then
signal svnserve to close and reopen the log file (which would create a new log
file). You can't just randomly close and reopen the log file, hoping that
something will notice; it has to be programmatically controlled.

Of course, I run everything under supervise, so writing to STDOUT works fine for
me. ;-) Thanks or taking on this task!
