No, but I might at this point note that you /basically/ were unable to grasp that authentication
in mod_dav_svn is delegated to Apache httpd. In this case, there simply is no such thing as
a "Subversion password", only one for httpd.

And for self-service password changes Subversion does not care how you do it. But it will
be a feature of one of the many httpd auth methods and modules, not mod_dav_svn. You were
given several pointers, but without grasping the separation that may not help you.
