Yes, unfortunately SVNListParentPath only finds repositories directly
in the SVNParentPath directory. But I think it would be a good idea
for Subversion to be enhanced to work the way you suggest. See my
previous message:


Perhaps, as an alternative, you could stop using SVNListParentPath
and instead write a simple script, for example in PHP. I'm not sure
that would work but it might be worth a try.
