Did you " See the documentation for details."???

" For other Unix-like operating systems, no single standard “keychain” service exists.
However, the Subversion client knows how to store passwords securely using the “GNOME Keyring”
and “KDE Wallet” services. Also, before storing unencrypted passwords in the ~/.subversion/auth/
caching area, the Subversion client will ask the user for permission to do so. Note that the
auth/ caching area is still permission-protected so that only the user (owner) can read data
from it, not the world at large. The operating system's own file permissions protect the passwords
from other non-administrative users on the same system, provided they have no direct physical
access to the storage media of the home directory, or backups thereof."
