Re: .htaccess in .svn

No, it's not part of my tree. My working copy is web accessible so that
I can serve/view what I'm working on, but because it's a working copy,
the .svn directories are also web accessible. That's bad, because if
someone were to stumble upon my working copy from the web, they would
have access to my code through .svn/text-base/mypage.svn-base.

I can keep Apache from serving .svn by 1) adding a <Directory> directive
to my httpd.conf file, which is a hassle and would require a restart
every time I added a project or directory in a project, or 2) drop an
.htaccess file in the .svn directory that keeps Apache from serving
anything in the .svn folder or its children.

I just want to know if svn is going to choke or hiccup or make
irritating noises if it finds a .htaccess file in a .svn directory.
