My guess is you won't be able to use SSPI under Linux, but it's just a guess.
The issue is that without using SSPI, you'll need to add all your
users to some other authentication data store That is if you care
about getting the user info into the commit message, or if you just
care about having authentication in general.
With any form of authentication in place, you'll need to configure
WebDrive individually anyway, so using SSPI won't save you that much
