Hello Simon,

   On Fri, 5 Nov 2004 14:15:27 -0000 (05.11.2004 19:15 my local time),
   received Saturday, November 6, 2004 at 5:49:34,
   you wrote about "[TSVN] Re: TortoiseSVN - FAQ"
   at least in part:

I'll try to answer instead of Steffen
   
SL> What exactly are you trying to protect,
Each file in repository

SL> and what are you protecting it against?
Tampering files, (or "faking" author identity)... Faking is "near-good"
term, because if

Write access to repository is authenticated

Username-pass can serve (and serve really) as User-ID, but this data
_can_ be stolen...

If all files in commit will be signed with ...something... S-MIME cert,
PGP-key, task of intruder will be harder

Best regards,
 Alexander Leschinsky
