Re: read-only repository view

Do you want people to be able to fetch pages from Subversion over a
web page? Or do you want people to be able to checkout code, but not
be able to check in changes?

If you want your source and all versions accessible over a web
browser, you might want to look at Sventon (which is free), ViewCS, or
a paid package like Fisheye. We use Sventon.

These will give you a read only view of your code, let you examine the
logs, look at previous versions, and do diffs. All visible through a
web browser and all read only.
