Several people seem to offer StartupItems for Apache2 for use with


My quick glance didn't turn up anyone offering one for svnserve. But,
StartupItems are easy to make. If you can figure out the command you
need to execute to get the thing started, then you can copy an
existing startup item and fix it up to meet your needs.

Also according to Google, Mac OS X used inetd in 10.0 thru 10.3.x;
xinetd in 10.3 thru 10.4.x, and a new Apple creation called launchd
from 10.4 onwards. launchd also replaces StartupItems, so it may be
beneficial to learn how to use launchd instead. Unfortunately I have
no experience with inetd, xinetd or launchd so I can't help further.
