There is also another way, to access all subversion revisions through a

I've written a filesystem for FUSE [1] (Linux and FreeBSD) that allows
mounting webdav resources. The filesystem is called wdfs [2] and can
mount generic webdav resources and offers a subversion mode, which
allows to access all revisions through a virtual directory again
containing one directory for each revision. Inside you can find the
files and dirs of the particular revision.


If you enable SVNAutoversioning you'll get a versioning filesystem. :)
