Description (last modified by broder)

"For a while I've had this idea of turning Apache into a FastCGI server, that gets invoked by going to some URL on a parent Apache. This would allow users to run Apache under their own UID with an arbitrary configuration, without putting it on a separate port and worrying about how to make it persistent over server restarts. For example, they could enable mod_dav_svn and host a Subversion repo that way. It would be the ultimate manifestation of the scripts philosophy that you should be able to install and configure whatever the hell you want."

We currently solve the subversion issue by documenting how to set up svnserve (http://scripts.mit.edu/faq/93/can-i-serve-subversion-or-git-repositories-on-scriptsmitedu). Is Subversion still popular enough for an autointaller to be worthwhile? Would a different title make this ticket worthwhile otherwise?

My belief is that the answer to both of those is no.

That said, there appears to be half-finished code in bindev...

If no one has cared enough to do this in the last 5 years, nobody is going to start caring about Subversion now.
