Manual bug and a suggestion

From: Markus Kuhn <Markus.Kuhn_at_cl.cam.ac.uk>

Bugreport: In


the -r option is described as being followed by an = sign, but
this does not match the implementation. I suspect the documentation
is wrong here.

Suggestion: On


you describe very nicely how the command option of sshd can be used to
allow several users to securely access a shared repository account. It
would be useful if you also described, how to achieve the same using
sudo instead of ssh if the repository account is on the local machine.
Ssh seems a bit overkill if no network communication is required,
but I still do not want the users direct access to the repository.

Question: Is svn designed to be run as a setuid program, such that not
even "sudo svnserve -t" would be necessary?
