Seems like apache is expecting a normal webfolder on your url rather
then a svn repo.

I don't think this is a good idea. Why would you alow anyone to web into the
directory where repos are. Point your doc root elsewhere to begin with.

This tells apache that http://your.server/repos should be handled by the DAV
using the svn module. And it also tells the svn module that it can expect to
find your repo in the /myserver/home/repos directory.

When you get apache to expect DAV svn on your url it will probably
complain about this spelling...
Mina has "AuthzSVNAccessFile /etc/httpd/conf.d/subauthz"
