definately works here! interesting, seems like a feature that
should be supported by mod_dav, but I was only asking, maybe with
the api I guessed?

Only half our office is using Tortuse, and some are using
commandline. Would be nice to be able to throw a url for everyone
in a wiki for a repo that does not have a trac browser front

Thanks for the offline responce to... (I did search doc prior..)

(near bottom)

 Can I view older revisions?

 With an ordinary web browser? In one word: nope. At least, not with mod_dav_svn as your only tool.
