I am running Debian Lenny with subversion installed. I have a normal user called "svnmaster" to whom I would like to give permission to run all the svnadmin commands. How can I do that. My repositories usually live in /var/lib/svn/. I do not want to share the root password with this user (john).
I think you can do "svnadmin create /path/to/repository" as any user.If you already created the repository, change the permission, from rootchown -R svnmaster:svnmaster /var/lib/svn
But make sure that your svnserver or weserver do have write permission to that location.
