Well right after I send this mail I realized that I must have been doing
this with CVS and not with SVN because in 1999-2000 I wasn't using SVN
yet (I think it was still in beta back then) - but it still works with
SVN I think. Reading the link I gave, I understand that you don't
actually need to run svnserver as in 'let svnserver bind to a port'; to
quote from the link 'This makes your SSH program launch a private
'svnserve' process on the remote box, which accesses the repository as
your UID and tunnels the information back over the encrypted link.'.

The link says "A simple option is to use the svnserve server instead of
Apache. See chapter 6 in the Subversion book for details. However, if
your admins don't want you to run Apache, it's very likely they don't
want you to run a custom server process on port 3690 either! So the rest
of this answer assumes that your admins are okay with you using an
existing SSH infrastructure." and I'm thinking that this is the
situation that the OP is in.

cheers,

roel
