Yes; it is described here:

Not that I'm aware of, not with just mod_dav_svn.

I'm not sure what "repository browser" you're referring to. But generally I would say that for anything beyond extremely simple viewing of the raw contents of repository files, you would want to install a more sophisticated 3rd-party tool for viewing the repository and its history. Many web-based options exist, for example ViewVC, WebSVN, Trac, etc. Many non-web-based options exist too, of course, in the form of GUI clients like TortoiseSVN, SmartSVN, RapidSVN, etc.


Thank you all for the information. I'm sure I'll find what I need from the list of possibilities.

Thanks again and best regards,
