The subversion server has the minimal HTTP read interface by default
when you configure it for HTTP access through Apache. This is a good
way to get real-time read-only access to the newest file version in
any Subversion repository or branch, individually.

Subversion can also be configured with "SVNAutoversioning on" in the
Apache conf, for full read-write direct WebDAV access, which makes it
look like any other WebDAV/DeltaV folder. Linux, BSD, Mac, and even M$
Windows (WebDrive) all have methods of mounting WebDAV folders, to
make them behave like any other form of network mount point, and very
similarly to local drive mounts. The difference between a normal
WebDAV and Subversion WebDAV folder is: all SVNAutoversioning file I/O
interactions are versioned, call by call, providing an extremely
robust form of real-time file and folder state backup. Paired with any
decent Repository Browser client, it is like having an infinite undo
of all your file/folder changes. With proper authentication settings,
all changes to the WebDAV mount can also be controlled, audited, and
immediately associated with the user responsible for the change. I
personally think this will become a major way for non-coders to start
seeing immediate benefits from Subversion.
