Re: Questions about migrating from svnserve to Apache

I did get a setup working with ViewVC and HTTP subversion...the ViewVC
URLs have /viewvc/ in them but that's it...you can hit up
http://server from both the svn client and a web browser. I didn't
figure out a way to have it use different virtual hosts and rewrite
rules based on the client. As promised, I'll post the info (in a
separate posting) in case it helps anyone in the future (and if anyone
can enhance it, great!)
