The ssl support was working fine with 1.1.16. But there where problem
when using 1..1.17. I will look into that issue asap.
The issue that I described in my last post is that we use anonymous
login on our servers so no user credentials are used only ssl-client-key
auth suffice.
Usernames are only neccessary for monitoring author of checkins.
So there was a problem that fsvs couldnt create the directory
~/.subversion on http-auth by itself but only uses the created from svn
when "svn ls <repo>" is used. This is what we wanted to avoid because we
dont want a bloat subversion installation on every server.
Thats why I created a patch for password option see attachment.
I have a working servers file and can post that if you want for

The changelog of 1.1.17 says:

In my opinion this will help excluding specific directories which
otherwise will get monitored when timestamp changes, no time to test
that atm.
E.g. when you add /etc/fsvs/config to fsvs-monitored files the folder
/etc/fsvs shows changed on every operation of fsvs because of updates in
/etc/fsvs/6666cd76f9​6956469e7be39d750cc7​d9/ . I want fsvs only monitors
the changes of /etc/fsvs/config and not its parent folder.

Can you explain what you mean with informational link?
I will also file a bug to launchpad about that issue, it was just now
only ubuntu's base-package which throws this error.

Thanks for taking time into that!
