There are two main options for committers to use when connecting to a Subversion repository at the Codehaus

  • svn+ssh
  • https

Due to group limits on the SVN repository server (beaver), we can not put apache in all committer groups, and hence we can only offer one of these two methods for all users in any given repository.
