The Subversion documentation says that I can set a parameter in ~/.subversion/config like

[auths]
password-stores = gnome-keyring

to have it cache my certificate password in gnome-keyring. I set the option, and nothing happens -- no error messages, no change in behavior, nothing. Maybe I'm missing a log somewhere?

I know subversion has to be compiled to support this but AFAIK I'm using the RPM version, which (they say...) ships with it rolled in. Is there a way to check whether my binary supports keyring? Shouldn't it say something if it doesn't?

Turns out I was running an older version of Subversion. I don't have the minimum required version on hand, but update to latest if you're having this issue, and you should be good to go.
