Hi,

I have attached an Init script for subversion (I put it in an archive
to make sure mail servers don't choke on it by any chance).

The script should be placed in /etc/init.d/(You can extract the archive
at the root directory).

        $ cd /
        $ tar -xjf /root/etc.tar.bz2

You could use the script to start, stop, restart, condrestart the
svnserve as a daemon and also check the status of the daemon. It will
use a pid file to store pid in order to kill the svnserve daemon.

This was tested on fc6 running kernel 2.6.20-1.2962.fc6. Subversion
1.4.2 (subversion-1.4.2-2.fc6).

Init script is something that I missed in svnserve. I use a local svn
servers for my personal projects and it was annoying to start the
service everytime I had shutdown the machine. Also I didn't want to
just add it such that it starts at the startup without init.

I think this is just what you are looking for.

To add this as a service run the following at the bash as root after
copying the files in the archive.

        $ /sbin/chkconfig --add svnserve

I didn't get the chance to test on many distros. :-(
I would like to correct any portability issues, let me know if there are
any.

Please let me know if there are any other issues in the Init script as well.

Cheers,
Mohanjith
