Thanks Bob.

I installed subversion edge but I don't know if it can help me or I just
can't figure it out. I can't get it to find our repositories. It won't
let me change the IP address which makes me think that it doesn't work
with non-local repositories. I searched the forums (developer and
admin) with the text "existing repositories" and found one post that
didn't match my question but it didn't matter anyway because the post
wasn't answered itself.

I was thinking about writing an html or java wrapper because command
line arguments are a thing of the past, forget about looking to the
future. Then I thought that edge does this. If it doesn't then is
there any thing else out there that may do this? For example I have to
set the svn:ignore property on 44 modules, and that is only one project.
We have other projects. Typing or editing the same command 44 times is
a bit archaic. It would be nice to type it once and click on the
modules that it applies to. I may write this myself because it would be
quicker to write a small program than type or edit the same thing over
and over again and hope I don't miss one.

Well, strictly not true. If you have access to remote share you can
create the repository on another machine.

John, if you use Subversion Edge it will allow you to create repos using
the Web Admin UI as well.
