Re: Newbie /etc/subversion question

I'm not sure if there's a way to get Subversion to automatically
generate a default /etc/subversion directory, but one way to do it
would be to create a default .subversion directory in you home
directory, and then move that to /etc/subversion. The .subversion
directory and /etc/subversion are identical, save for location and
scope of effect.
