Indeed, as the $Id$ keyword should have author as it's latest bit, after
commit date. It's not there - then it's safe to assume that it was empty at
commit, meaning that repository is set for anonymous write access.

Install Apache :) Best choice for all your needs. Add mod_auth_sspi if you
want to authenticate against Windows users names. (Wish SVN could support
SSPI by itself)
