Thanks for bringing it up. If it comes up again, I do urge you to
consider doing a "sudo" wrapper for a repository generation tool, one
that will generate repositories in a default location that your Apache
or other default setup could work with. That could also do default
setups of $reponame/conf/ files to set default access,
$reponame/script/pre-commit to force people to include comments when
they submit changes, etc.
