haven't looked at gforge in awhile..

does it have the ability to manage user access/roles/permissions for svn

also, how can you accomplish this without having to restart apache, since
i'm assuming that you need to put the new folder into the httpd.conf file...

gforge?
At my company, we actually use a heavily modified version of
