That's a shame.

Here's what I think is the relevant section of our httpd.conf:

<Location /Subversion>
  DAV svn
  SVNParentPath L:/Subversion/Repositories
  SVNAutoversioning on

  AuthType SSPI
  AuthName "Subversion repositories"
  Require valid-user
  SSPIAuth On
  SSPIAuthoritative On
  SSPIOfferBasic On
#  SSPIUsernameCase lower ## Breaks authentication
#  SSPIPerRequestAuth Off ## This breaks Apache2

  AuthzSVNAccessFile L:\Subversion\conf\svnaccessfile.conf

Note that we're running Apache 2.0.  Here are the exact details from the server's "Services"

 Apache/2.0.54 (Win32) DAV/2
 OpenSSL/0.9.8 SVN/1.2.3
 Python/2.3.5 PHP/5.0.4

I'm trying (as a background task from my regular job) to upgrade to Apache 2.2, but it's proving
to be a bit of a learning experience.

Part of our issue is that the people who originally set it all up (and who started doing the
upgrade once upon a time) have moved on to other jobs.  Another part is that maintenance of
SVN is a very small part of my job - so small it's under "other duties as directed" in the
position description, along with numerous other tasks.  (I guess many of us on this mailing
list will be in similar positions, too.)

I'm still learning, even 25+ years into my work life...

Thanks for your patience.
