Hook script idea would be pretty good. I think the easiest way to do this
would just be to checkout the root of the repository to some location. You
could then run svn update as part of a hook script or as a scheduled job
depending on your needs. Advantage is that is simple and update is fast.
Disadvantage is that this mirror will be a working copy and have the .svn

Where is the documentation for configuring the Apache server to server the

TortoiseSVN includes some nice docs. Otherwise just use Google. There are
a lot of articles that approach this from different angles. I'd stick with
svnserve. The WebDAV option is not well suited to what you want to do.
Hook scripts would work better and would work fine with svnserve. Don't get
me wrong, I use the Apache option exclusively (for SSL and LDAP
authentication), I just would not recommend switching for this reason.
