Re: [SVN] SVN and LDAP

Thank you very much james. I look forward to your solution. I've found
a little bit of a solution from Mandriva where they modify the
svn_perms.py file, however as I'm not 100% familiar with the
additional python tools I'm not 100% sure on how to implement this
myself in an ubuntu environment.

The other issue that I have with it is, as this is an enterprise
environment, that sort of customization would prefer to be avoided,
however I understand that in this particular situation such may be
required, and I am not avoiding it 100%.

Thanks for your future reply :)
