Re: Multiple Users with websvn

Yep... the permissions access problem seems to be entirely around bdb,
and it appears fsfs was developed to solve some of that. It's possible
to allow the apache webdav access to be read-only, but only if the
repository is using fsfs.

Easy enough to change over though.. I just did it.

1) svnadmin dump > ../somefile
2) blow away your old repository directory.
3) svnadmin create --fs-type fsfs
4) svnadmin load < ../somefile

Voila!
