Subject [users@httpd] SVN access w/ SSL while keeping old permissions
Date Mon, 04 Aug 2008 20:20:35 GMT

I already have an svn repository and I am working on getting it set up so
that it can be accessed from anywhere through https view ssl. 

I have setup the svn server to work with apache2 and I can access my
repositories over SSL just fine, but I want to use the previously
established permissions (my the folder directory structure) and login
information. I can get blanket access through adding a "Require valid-user"
line to where I set up my svn server, but I just want to enforce the
permissions already established. Is there anyway to use the file permission
structure already in place in the svn rather then having to go through
creating a whole new svnauth file? 

I could probably accomplish what I want by creating a script to adaptively
make new svn auth files based on which user that logs in and what
permissions they have, but there should be an easier way. Am I better off
just using svn+ssh to access my repositories? I was hoping to use

Thank you for any help you can provide.
