Subject Password management tools for Subversion web access?
Date Wed, 06 Jun 2012 01:24:48 GMT
I'm looking at a Subversion setup that would benefit from a webform to
alter user passwords. The existing tools are..... limited. There are some
that can set passwords for ".htpassword", but have no tools for adding or
deleting accounts, and have no hooks for themselves submitting the
resulting .htpasswd file to Subversion on a master server. And I do *not*
want to run a key Subversion repository on the same exposed server
necessary to manage the passwords, it would just get..... adventurous in
terms of security.

Is there a toolkit out there for integrating the following tasks?

     * Allowing authenticated Subversion users to alter their passwords?
     * Allowing authenticated admins to add or delete accounts?
     * Publishing the updated .htpasswd or similar file to a primary
Subversion repository securely and robustly?
     * Incorporating changes to that .htpasswd or similar file that are
added by authorized users for other means (for security management reasons)?
