RE: Re: Apache or svnserve?

I am using SVN for approx. 20 developers with svnserve. Works nicely, no hassle, very fast, no overhead. However, svnserve stores passwords in cleartext in the repository configuration, and there is no svn mechanism to change those except editing the cleartext passwd file. Therefore

- don't use svnserve if you want to have high security. svn+ssh might be an option then
- use passwords only as pro forma check that the person doing the check-in in really means it.

This should be ol for a team of your size.
