I decided that maybe this would be educational to others like me,
so I am posting it to the list.
If I mount the the repository as a file system using a WebDAV client,
how would I accomplish doing an svn info on a file, for example? I assume
that svn info would think files in the mounted file system are unversioned
Is there a way to discover the URL of files mounted in this way?
