Re: Advice need: making svn "secure"

Personally, I prefer to keep the security and the functionality
elements separate. What about a good 'ole VPN connection? VPN in to
your home network, then use regular svnserve for access. That way,
the server is never exposed. Of course, I'm assuming that you can
setup the VPN end points... :-(
