On the SVN pages I saw mention that svnserve would be a faster way to
access the svn server, but at the same time not as versatile as via

So my existing Apache 2.2.22 installation will remain as-is and the
one that comes with VisualSVN will be another service working on
another port?

Does this mean that there are GUI tools for andministering such things
as path dependent permissions and user accounts?

I need to import a lot of projects, which were managed by CVSNT in
separate repositories (for user permission reasons). It looks likely I
will put them all into a single SVN repository as top-level projects,
or else in projects located in subdirectories named as the old
repositories used (i.e one level down).
What is your advice regarding the procedure to get the CVSNT projects
into VisualSVN?
