Apache + mod_dav_svn is required to serve a Subversion repository over http (or https). You
can run this simultaneously with svnserve for serving the repository over the svn protocol,
provided you set up permissions/ownership properly. There's documentation in the book. However,
I'm not sure what benefit there is to offering multiple access methods. For example, if you
want to serve the repository over http via Apache + mod_dav_svn, then why also run svnserve?

serf is the library the svn client uses to access a repository that is being served by Apache
+ mod_dav_svn.
