Re: Subversion access control

One thing has hit my mind today that I don't think you realize ...

* I have never, in my entire life, seen a working Subversion system.
Apparently Subversion, as distributed, doesn't work - the access
authentications are deliberately turned off.

It would be really neat if somebody had a sample repository on Linux in
/var/svn and could tar it up and get it to me. Or zip it along with 'ls
-l' output also. E-mail it or post it on the internet.

I would like to see what the contents of server.conf and passwd and
authz are IN AN ACTUAL WORKING SYSTEM. I would like to see what the file
ownerships are and file access permisions. I could test this. I could
make obvious changes to it ( e.g. user names) and it should continue to
work. Having a working Subversion system I could then make small
incremental changes to it and keeping it working.

I would like to have a working system that I could break, rather than a
broken system that I can't figure out how to fix.
