Public SVN access
 
Hey guys,
I want to setup public svn access, so some of the crazy users that
want to check things out over SVN can do so.

First off, if anyone has experience with this, please let me know if
svnserve is the best way to go here.

Secondly, I was wondering if there's anyway to check/block the stupid
people that are going to check out the entire freaking repo and waste
gerolde resources. I know people will do this, people are going to be
stupid and bog down gerolde's bandwidth, but people keep emailing me
crying "I want svn access!", and I'm sick of it. So I want to enable
svn access with the caveat that you "don't check out the full repo,
you jackass - use ABS for that"

Just to let you know, when I get around to releasing the next abs,
people will be able to download single/multiple packages using "abs
<repo1>/<package1> <repo2>/<package2>" format. I did this to satisfy
the people who wanted SVN access to get single packages.

What people will still be complaining about is:

1) They cannot access trunk (could be integrated in abs)
2) There is a delay until changes show up in abs.

It always bothers me when a project offers a web viewer for their
repositories (users CAN browse the original SVN repository online), but
doesn't offer the possibility to check it out. I still vote for public
SVN access, although we should still provide 1) with abs.

A friend of mine tried
$ svn checkout -N http://archlinux.org/home/svn-packages
and got
svn: Repository moved permanently to
'http://archlinux.org/home/svn-packages/'; please relocate
