Also, reading the book, it looks like you could turn on this setting if
you have a "public" cert.

ssl-trust-default-ca

    Set this variable to yes if you want Subversion to automatically trust
the set of default CAs that ship with OpenSSL.

So that would look like this in the servers file.

[global]
ssl-trust-default-ca = yes
