SSLProxy is only needed for proxying http -> https, as I understand it.
And I have the ProxyPassReverse directive, however

reverse proxying subversion unfortunately only works if the uri
structure is the same on the proxy server and the backend server, as you
found out yourself a while ago ;-)


Somehow ProxyPassReverse doesn't catch the webdav stuff.

I'm searching for a way to automagically access all the repositories
(which are under different domains, not just different inside a
ParentPath) over https without duplicating the <Location> directive in
two vhosts.
