svnserve authenticating against Windows domain credentials

I've been swearing for the last few hours at the horrendous
documentation for SASL and how to use it with svnserve.

Please somebody put me out of my misery.


I want our users to provide their windows domain login credentials to
access subversion via svn://


So far I know to put this:



use-sasl = true


in my svnserve.conf file.


Then it seems I need a subversion.conf file somewhere.. I think on a
standard windows install of the subversion server components this is
supposed to go beside the SASL DLLs e.g. beside libsasl.dll,
svnserve.exe, etc.


But I havent' the foggiest idea what should go in the SASL config file
(subversion.conf). The SASL documentation is useless. Lots of charts
about what can go on the left side of the =, but basically zero
information about what you might want to put on the right side of the


Am I out to lunch thinking that this would be the most sought after
method for using svn:// in a Windows environment?


I don't want to use Apache since I'm not interested in bloating my
source control system with a web server and dealing with the
configuration of it as well.
