Sure have.

I'm also authenticating against an Active Directory server

Here's my config (with names changed):

<Location /repos>
   DAV svn
   SVNPath /path/to/repository

   # Limit write permission to list of valid users.

      AuthType Basic
      AuthName "Repository Name"
      AuthLDAPEnabled On
      AuthLDAPAuthoritative on
      AuthLDAPBindDN DOMAINNAME\ldapuser
      AuthLDAPBindPassword ldapuserpassword


Note that I'm using sAMAccountName as the login name, not sure if this
is always the correct thing to do, but it works for me.

I've also made apache bind as "ldapuser", rather than the user who is
actually authenticating. This account would need to be created under
your domain. I don't know if this is needed (for Active Directory), I
know it's not what you're really supposed to do. But again, it works for

For the record, I am running svn 1.0.4 on redhat 9 with apache 2.0.48.

Active Directory is running under Windows 2000 Server.
