RE: svnserve authenticating against Windows domain credentials

Based on the dates found in the SASL source code (which is sadly where
the documentation is buried for Subversion "users"), the project has
been dead for years.
This simply isn't going to happen.

I've been told "it isn't worth it" when suggesting a Linux server.. it
would complicate our backup process amoung other headaches.

Moving to Apache will break our projects because we use svn:externals to
pull together product workspaces from the various semi-independent
projects in the repository. Even though 1.5 allows us to use the
repo-relative URLs in svn:externals.. it means we wouldn't be able to
checkout any old versions of our software.

Unless another option is found for snvserve we simply have to live with
no reasonable form of authentication on Windows.

I'd suspect the LDAP back-end could be made to work with Windows, but
as you say the docs suck so it will take someone that wants to spend
the time to understand the code and port it all to build and work on
