Subversion User Management

I guess it’s partly due to how much Virtualmin/Webmin spoils one with all of its features, but I was disappointed to see that setting up a subversion repository doesn’t give you any method for managing users, even though it sets up the relevant files, apache directives, etc.

Please add this to the feature request list, even though I think it’s more modest than the “Blue Skies” title of this forum. Is/should there be a different place for smaller feature requests?

Well, I think you can do what you’re after by going into the “Edit Mail and FTP Users” section for a domain you have Subversion enabled for, and while creating a user – you’ll see “Other user permissions”.

Within that are options to enable a Subversion login, as well as choose what repositories they have access to.

Thanks Andy! That does the trick. And neatly solves the problem of letting users change their own passwords.

I’m a little ashamed that I didn’t think to look there, but I had searched the forums first at least. Hopefully others will find your reply in the future.
