Re: [Subclipse-users] svnant and authentication

Ah, well that puts me in a bind. I wrote custom tasks and everything worked
great in my test environment. Now, that I'm in production (with no way to
go back since the users will never leave SVN for CVS now) auth is
unreliable. I guess I can start from scratch and build a task around the
svn kit provided that it works. It looks like SVN kit has a means for
working with ssh keys.
