Re: authentication client caching

Actually, after reading through the svnbook one more time, I thought
about it some more, and then realized what's going on is expected behavior.

If I'm going to use svn+ssh, then credential caching is not an available
feature. When connecting to the repos, I have to first create the ssh
connection/tunnel first. This is that connection that's prompting me
for my password everytime (duh). Once the connection is done, the
local svnserve process is spawned and blah blah blah. The local
svnseve won't prompt me for a username/password beucase it's like a
file://// access, right?

Anyway, so am I right concluding that credential caching is not an
option with the svn+ssh:// access method because my SSH client needs to
do the caching, not the SVN client?

thanks,
Jeff
