Re: how can I change my password by SVN client?

Subversion doesn't have its own native security. This is actually a better
way because it allows you to use external security regimens.

For example, we use LDAP and connect to our Active Server via Apache. Now, I
don't have to worry about settiing up users independently. If a user is in
the Windows server's engineering group, they automatically have access to
Subversion without me doing anything. Once they leave, they have no more

Even better, their Subversion password is the same as their Windows
password. No more forgetting their password.

If I use ssh+svn://, the operating system handles logging in and out. My
name and password is the same as my Unix account.

There is no reason why the Subversion administrator cannot setup a way for
users to maintain their own passwords.Unfortunately, without knowing your
setup, I can't advice you how this could be done.
