Re: Web-based Subversion user administration

I'm grateful for the encouragement!

BTW, I wanted to make it clear that I am not the author, or even a
member, of the Authman project. I simply posted it to suggest it as a
viable alternative to command-line based user management.

My project deals only with group/user access to repository paths based
on authz_svn.
I plan to integrate the authz_svn administration with htaccess in the
future so that groups and
users put on the access list can be verified to actually exist.
The same is true for repositories. Currently, you can put anything
you want on the access list by way of user/group or repository path.
There is no validation that such objects actually exist since putting
extra information into the authz_svn file won't hurt the
authentication process.

 Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will
