The default UNIX installations lack sane subversion config file. At least the following options should be set up in the place automatically

--> Otherwise novice people will clutter their passwords all over the server and commit shit into your repos

Ah but there are easier solutions:

  • stop using svn or if that is not feasible
  • stop using mod_dav_svn

miohtama commented Feb 11, 2013

However, all the novice people we cannot directly contact, don't know this. Should we instead have a script "YOU ARE AN ASSHOLE BECAUSE YOU USE MOD_DAV_SVN LOL"?

a) I'd say: if you do not use that shitty mod_dav_svn you do not store passwords.
b) Who cares whatever stuff ppl commit into svn
c) I do not want to promote svn usage any more than necessary :D


ztane commented Feb 11, 2013

and let me add d) novice uses wouldn't commit shit to your git repos (they would send a pull request instead), nor would you want to give them commit access to the svn repo either, for as long as they couldn't do the svn iggy and svn:ignore file properly :P
