I'm not sure what is best, keeping subversion users and passwords in synch with linux users and passwords or just having linux somehow provide subversion authentication service.
I'd prefer to just maintain only linux users since I find it easy to add and remove users on ubuntu. I'd like to issue the command "sudo adduser developer" and "developer" immediately have access to subversion repositories.
At the moment, I must first create a linux user then create subversion user with the following:
sudo htpasswd -m /var/lib/svn/mainrepo/conf/htpasswd developer
Is there a better way?
