Subject viewvc svn revealing fullpaths
Date Fri, 18 Dec 2009 03:00:54 GMT

I don't want users to view the entire directory path when
navigating to a repository -- but it seems this is the default
behavior.  I've dug around in the config file, and in the users@
mailing-list, and haven't been able to find what I need.  Before
I go digging more through code I thought I'd post.

The URL I want users to see when they navigate to a module within
a repository, say, for example modules "Module_1", "Module_2",
and "Module_3", should be something like this:

However, the behavior right now is this:

Why is it, once I get to "/viewvc-cgi/viewvc.cgi/repository/", I
must then navigate through the real directory structure to reach
the true module? Any advice on how to change this?  What
configuration items am I missing?

My setup:

  viewvc 1.1.2
  svn: 1.6.6_1
  py: 2.6.2_3
  os: freebsd 7.2-rel

repository stored here:


repository was created with this command:

  $ svnadmin create /usr/home/svn/repository

apache configuration:

   ScriptAlias /viewvc-cgi/ "/usr/local/viewvc/bin/cgi/"
   <Directory "/usr/local/viewvc/bin/cgi">
      AllowOverride None
      Options None
      Order allow,deny
      Allow from all

ssh svn access with pubkeys; relevant pubkeys prefixed with this
in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys2:

  command="/usr/local/bin/svnserve -t -r /usr/home/svn/repository --tunnel-user=avr",no-port-forwarding,no-agent-forwarding,no-X11-forwarding,no-pty
ssh-dss [...]

viewvc lives in "/usr/local/viewvc", and relevant configuration
items are:

  root_parents = /usr/home/svn/repository: svn
  root_as_url_component = 1
  allowed_views = annotate, diff, markup, roots, co, tar
  default_file_view = co

Please let me know if you'd like more information regarding my

Thanks in advance!
