Subversion has no pre- or post-checkout hook, and as far as I know,
file://, svn:// and svn+ssh:// access have no logging capability.
Apache has its normal access log and also now the high-level log
which can be used to determine when someone checked something out, so
yes, I believe if you want to track who checked what out when, your
repository will need to be served with the Apache module. There are
several other features which are available only in the Apache module
at this time, including authentication via an LDAP server and listing
all the repositories in a directory. Perhaps some of these features
will eventually be available in svnserve as well, but they're not now.
