Let's clear one thing up first. You seem to want domain-based, automatic client authentication, via active directory / kerberos, right? This does not work if you are using svnserve 1.4, so you'll have to wait till at least when 1.5 is released. For now, if you're using 1.4, the only authentication on svnserve is stored in a plain-text flat file on the server, so it essentially means that the sys admin must assign the password for each user.

Correct, everyone?

For now, if you want kerberos authentication, single sign-on, users choose their own passwords, then apache is the preferred method, but you could also consider svn+ssh, or IIS. Right everyone?
