Mark, sorry your experience with Subversion has been ...
less-than-pleasant.  Unfortunately, you've mailed the Subversion source
code commits list.  Your mail is better aimed at
users@subversion.tigris.org (which I'm Cc:ing in this response).

That said, some inline responses follow.

Yes, I've read every friggin post in the mail archive, everything on the
svn website, and even RTFM (book).
That being said, I am using Apache 2.2.0 with svn 1.3.0.  All the
DAV/SVN/AUTHZ modules are loaded, and my httpd.conf entry looks like this:
<Location /svn>
    DAV svn
    SVNParentPath /opt/svn  # one repos under parent right now called
    # plus all the usual security crap that is commented out right now
Yes, the owner/group of the repos is identical to Apache httpd.
So wtf is this fail-to-load error (which screws everything) showing up
in the apache error_log every time I try to use the svn client or a web
browser to connect to the repos?  I've been trying to solve this for 2

I presume you are trying to access the repository using the URL
"http[s]://SERVER/svn/newwww/", yes?  Are you able to, as the user that
Apache runs as, access the repository via "file:///opt/svn/newwww/" ?
Does 'svnlook youngest /opt/svn/newwww' yield anything interesting?

And for that matter, wtf am I reading documentation that still refers to
1.1 and 1.2???  If you committers are going to release the software,
don't you think updating the DOCUMENTATION would be a Good Thing, too?

Are there particular aspects of your problems with Subversion that you
feel are specific to versions of Subversion newer than 1.2?  Obviously,
keeping the documentation up-to-date is desirable, but as with the code,
is mostly a volunteer effort.  If you have patches which will improve
the coverage or quality of that documentation, please submit them (to
svnbook-dev@red-bean.com).  Thanks.

I really appreciate all of the hard work that has gone into subversion. The book is excellent and I have learned so much over the years just from this list. Not only how-to, but best practice as well. Occasionally someone has enthusiastically thanked the authors, and after reading this volatile post I felt another hearty round of thanks was in order. You have set a wonderful example of how to diffuse a thorny post. I consider it a great privilege  to  read the responses of  the developers and authors. You know who you are!

 Thank you very much,
