Hi all!

I find it very convenient that Subversion uses the current (OS-)user for
authentication when accessing the repository through an SSH tunnel.

In a local network, I consider the SSH tunnel to produce too much
overhead, and I would like to use "normal" access through svnserve.
Unfortunately I have to supply svnserve with an extra passwd file.

Is there any way to make svnserve use the current-user information for
authentication? Or would that be insecure?

Thanks,
Florian
