Thanks, I was thinking about getting ViewVC but was afraid it would
break ApacheSvn since svn is using Apache...
Seeing that it installs alongside svn is reassuring.

So I did this:
sudo apt-get install viewvc

And that worked, however I followed a how-to I found on the net which
seems not to work...
Probably too old (I did not notice the 2008 item).

So now I am stuck in the configuration stage.
Then I found this:
and was totally overwhelmed by the complexity of setting this up.

I once installed ViewCVS on Windows servers back about 10 years ago
(for CVS) and it was really not this complex to get running.

I have yet to see anything at all via the Apache web server.
