I'm not sure. I haven't looked into the web-based repo browsers
recently. I'm sure at least log entries would be searchable by some
such tool. The tool would need to provide a post-commit hook (and in
the case of meta info like log texts, a post-revprop-change hook) to
grab the meta info or file content and stuff it in a searchable (e.g.
MySQL) database. I think at least one of the existing repo browsers
does this.

All but the log entries could be handled by making your repository
available via http or https and pointing an indexer (like a Google
search appliance) at the URL. If it were me though I'd probably do it
all in a post-commit hook.

I have our working copies on an SMB mount and that works ok. It's a
bit of a performance hit because of all the disk cache thrashing the
SMB server must be going through. We've not tried hosting a
repository on an SMB share, though... What is the perceived benefit
of this arrangement?
