Re: SVN Server or file protocal on network share?

These advantages are valid for svnserve and Apache.
One difference is, that Apache can use the windows authentication
system. Therefore you need no special passwords for svn. The svnserve
passwords are non encrypted saved for example in the repositories conf
subdirectory. For that reason the repository administrator can see the
passwords and has to manage them.

For the dedicated access control you need svnserve release 1.3.2. (Cf.
http://subversion.tigris.org/svn_1.3_releasenotes.html )
