RE: Subversion Authentication

We installed Subversion on a Windows 2003 Standard SP2 Server box.
Installed from exe file downloaded from website.
Chose windows authentication and created top level repository.
We know nothing about this software as it was just dumped in our laps so sorry about the lack of useful information.

What is a "default install"? A Linux box with RPM's from RPMforge, a
Windows server with a particular toolkit, or what?

Any Apache based server that can handle mod_auth_kerb can use the
underlying Kerberos login names and passwords that Active Directory is
built on. That doesn't get you "group" management, but it's a starting
place. Be aware that Linux and UNIX and CygWin svn command line
clients, by default, will store the HTTP or HTTPS passwords in clear
text in the user's home directory: this is why I generally refuse to
use this.

But if you can somehow prevent such access, or have confidence in your
users not to use such tools, it should be straightforward to set up.
Group information and privileges, well, you'd have to give better
ideas of what you're trying to allow, and what you're trying to
prevent. And you *really* need to go read the Subversion book at
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/, focusing on the access control chapters.
Especially look here:
