SVN::Web - Subversion repository web frontend


    > mkdir cgi-bin/svnweb
    > cd cgi-bin/svnweb
    > svnweb-install

Edit config.yaml to set the source repository, then point your browser to index.cgi/repos to browse it.

You will also need to make the svnweb directory writeable by the web server.


SVN::Web provides a web interface to subversion repositories. You can browse the tree, view history of a directory or a file, see what's changed in a specific revision, track changes with RSS, and also view diff.

SVN::Web also tracks the branching feature (node copy) of subversion, so you can easily see the relationship between branches.


You can enable mod_perl support of SVN::Web with the following in the apache configuration:

    Alias /svnweb /path/to/svnweb
    <Directory /path/to/svnweb/>
      AllowOverride None
      Options None
      SetHandler perl-script
      PerlHandler SVN::Web


Note that the first time for accessing a repository might be very slow, because the Branch plugin has to create cache for copy information. for a large 9000-revision repository it takes 2 minutes.
