Autoversioning and WebFolders

From: Michael Marchant <michael_at_greybeard-its.com>

I am trying to access Subversion repository on RH8 through WebFolders on a
Windows 2000 client. I have Subversion .24 installed. I can create a
WebFolder and Get documents from the repository.

According to Appendix D. WebDAV and Autoversioning of the Definitive Guide,
The principle method to use is a "copy-edit-paste" to edit and autoversion a
file in the repository.

I can currently open, edit, and save a document with MS Word to a
non-subversion directory set up for WebDAV using Apache 2.0.46.

When I try to use autoversioning, per Appendix D. When coping to the
subversion repository, I get an error reported by the client program, MS
Word or Windows Explorer indicating -- "An error occured while copying some
or all of the select files"

The Apache error_log reports 2 errors:

First: Unable to checkout resource ...<path/to/file>
Second: (17)File Exists: Activities cannot be created at that location;
query the DAV:activity-collection-set property

These two error log entries repeat a second time.

My httpd.conf for the repository is as follows.

<Location /svn>
   DAV svn
   SVNParentPath /usr/local/svn
   SVNAutoversioning on
   AuthType Basic
   AuthName "Subversion repository"
   AuthUserFile /etc/svn-auth-file
   Require valid-user

I also have the following DavLockDB configured in httpd.conf

DavLockDB /usr/local/Security/DavLock

I am curious as to whether anyone has been able to get the
WebDAV/autoversioning features of Subversion working.

I would appreciate any help in solving this configuration issue.
