One major source of confusion and frustration with the mod_dav_svn
operational logging support is that it was design to merely complement the
baseline Apache logging. This means that where no interesting additional
information would be added with an operational log line, no such line is
written. Unfortunately, this means that simple GET requests such as those
used when navigating a repository with a web browser don't generate
subversion log lines (because they would be entirely redundant with
access_log lines). I think I was originally in favor with this idea, but
have since grown to hate it due to the confusion it causes.
