For those not on the dev@ list:

True renames are being worked on, but only in the repository API (it
involves a schema change.) Dunno when it will be done, but even when
it is, it won't be immediately obvious to users. It will take a long

I'm working on getting svnserve to log accesses and high-level client
operations, as well as improving mod_dav_svn's logging.
