Re: caching proxy between a svn client and a server ?

I do not see any specific docs for it. There is not too much to it.
You setup the Proxy just however you do it. In the case of the Apache
proxy, I believe you need to use mod_cache to add the caching.

On the client you just need to configure it to use ra_serf. See:


My biggest problem in trying to set this up is that most of my
repositories use SSL and that makes it a lot more difficult to put a
caching proxy in the middle. I've been told it can be done, but I do
not know how to set it up.
