I sent the below to a Debian list but didn't get a response so
perhaps some kind person here could point me in the right direction?
Ta, M

> CustomLog logs/svn_logfile "%t %u %{SVN-ACTION}e" env=SVN-ACTION
> In this example, we're asking Apache to create a special logfile
> svn_logfile in the standard Apache logs directory. The %t and %u
> variables are replaced by the time and username of the request,
> respectively. The really important part are the two instances of
> SVN-ACTION. When Apache sees that variable, it substitutes the
> value of
> the SVN-ACTION environment variable, which is automatically set by
> mod_dav_svn whenever it detects a high-level client action.
