Re: TortoiseSVN+TortoisePlink+SSH.

that's what I guessed too, the problem is that I do not want to have a
separate list of users to maintain, unless svnserve can be plugged on LDAP
(w/o Apache), which is not really the case, the only solution I have found
was to use svn+ssh:// which guarantees me to have an authentication and
therefore a username. Otherwise, with anon access, there is no username that
is sent to svnserve for him to store it in the author property, which makes
total sense.

I will try to invert those 2 settings, but I highly doubt it will change
anything, since I'm not using an SVN pw db.

What would have been nice, would have been to tunnel the file:/// protocol
instead of the svn:// protocol, file:/// has the name that gets sent to the
server, as the user has to be authenticated to use the protocol.

I will try it to see if I can manage to do something alike.

Have a nice day,
