RE: Connecting Tortoise to Subversion/Apache on Linux.

Thanks for this prompt feedback. I removed the Alias line from my conf file
and the Apache access now works.

For the documentation: I found no reference in the back catalogue of user
group emails, or the FAQ, or the subversion book, or the Tortoise
documentation that states don't use the Alias directive. (None say do use it
either from what I remember). What I did find was the explicit use of this
directive in the subversion.conf file that arrives in the
/etc/apache2/conf.d directory when installing subversion on SUSE. I based my
Apache conf entirely on this sample file.

Don't do this. This is effectively doing what the documentation says
not to do.

Instead, you probably want to use "SVNParentPath /srv/svn"
