Moved SVN server from W2K to SuSE Linux 9.0

I just moved our subversion server from our Windows 2000 Server (using
mod_sspi to authenticate) to our Linux server.

The authentication is still done in our ADS realm using winbindd (of
samba 3). Apache does the authenticates against PAM which asks
winbindd if an httpd wants to authenticate. (There are _no_ local
accounts on the machine for the subversion users!)

So all runs fine, but now I clearly see, that for many operations on a
WC a user gets authenticate several times. I suppose that this is a real
bottleneck: if I check out our biggest project (344 files, 72 folders) I
get 426 entries "user access granted" in the logs generated by PAM.

I suppose, that apache ask subversion for every file seperately and not as
a whole bunch. That's ok, but maybe I missed an option to activate a
credential caching, so that an user needs to be authenticate just once in
let's say 120 seconds. I'm not sure, whether that would be an apache or a
subversion option.


PS: If someone is interessted about the moving of the server and the setup
on the linux machine with authentication at the Win2K server, I could
write a short report. ;-)
