If you're being prompted for Plone/Zope authentication,
then it sounds like your request is still hitting the
Zope server somewhere along the way. Which it shouldn't,
because your RewriteRule should prevent Apache from
passing the request to your Zope server.

Remember that the order of Apache rewrite directives
is important, so make sure that your /svn rule takes

Perhaps you could post all your rules? I guess the
issue is more an Apache issue (mod_rewrite) than a
Subversion or Plone/Zope issue, so you might have
more luck on an Apache list.

Can I suggest adding some content at /svn in your Plone
site, so that if a request does make it through to
Zope, you'll know?

An alternative is to use two separate virual hosts:
use appropriate RewriteRules in "www.mysite.com" to
proxy for the Zope server, but use SVNPath etc in
