Re: certificate/password storage

Message Hi Phil!

Some update with tests I made.
I created the dir hierarchy that fsvs wanted (yesterdays strace output):

/etc/fsvs/auth/auth .

When I drop the server file in that folder fsvs already makes use on it but
still asks for a password which then is not stored.

When I create the subdir "svn.simple" fsvs is able to store the password/user
pair. Only problem that no arises is that it takes the same username when fsvs
perform checkins as another user. So the global storing is not appreciated but
using something like ~/.fsvs.

The 2 problems we have is that:
1. config_dir= is ignored
2. the file hierarchy is not created for some reason. When second is working
will it also support environment variables like $HOME?

Cheers,
Gunnar
