       svnserve - Server for the 'svn' repository access method

       svnserve [options]

       svnserve  allows access to Subversion repositories using the svn network protocol.  It can
       both run as a standalone server process, or it can run out of inetd.  You  must	choose	a
       mode of operation when you start svnserve.  The following options are recognized:

       -d, --daemon
	    Causes  svnserve  to run in daemon mode.  svnserve backgrounds itself and accepts and
	    serves TCP/IP connections on the svn port (3690, by default).

	    Causes svnserve to listen on port when run in daemon mode.

	    Causes svnserve to listen on the interface specified by host, which may be	either	a
	    hostname or an IP address.

	    When  used	together  with -d, this option causes svnserve to stay in the foreground.
	    This option is mainly useful for debugging.

       -i, --inetd
	    Causes svnserve to use the stdin/stdout file descriptors, as  is  appropriate  for	a
	    daemon running out of inetd.

       -h, --help
	    Displays a usage summary and exits.

       -r root, --root=root
	    Sets the virtual root for repositories served by svnserve.	The pathname in URLs pro-
	    vided by the client will be interpreted relative  to  this	root,  and  will  not  be
	    allowed to escape this root.

       -R --read-only
	    Force all write operations through this svnserve instance to be forbidden, overriding
	    all other access policy configuration.  Do not use this option to set general reposi-
	    tory  access  policy  -  that is what the conf/svnserve.conf repository configuration
	    file is for.  This option should be used only to restrict access via a certain method
	    of	invoking  svnserve  -  for  example, to allow write access via SSH, but not via a
	    svnserve daemon, or to create a restricted SSH key which  is  only	capable  of  read

       -t, --tunnel
	    Causes svnserve to run in tunnel mode, which is just like the inetd mode of operation
	    (serve one connection over stdin/stdout) except that the connection is considered  to
	    be	pre-authenticated with the username of the current uid.  This flag is selected by
	    the client when running over a tunnel agent.

	    When combined with --tunnel, overrides the pre-authenticated username with	the  sup-
	    plied  username.   This  is  useful in combination with the ssh authorized_key file's
	    "command" directive to allow a single system account to be used by	multiple  commit-
	    ters, each having a distinct ssh identity.

       -T, --threads
	    When  running  in daemon mode, causes svnserve to spawn a thread instead of a process
	    for each connection.  The svnserve process still backgrounds itself at startup time.

       -X, --listen-once
	    Causes svnserve to accept one connection on the svn port, serve it, and  exit.   This
	    option is mainly useful for debugging.

       Once  the  client has selected a repository by transmitting its URL, svnserve reads a file
       named conf/svnserve.conf in the repository directory to determine repository-specific set-
       tings  such  as	what  authentication  database	to use and what authorization policies to
       apply.  See the svnserve.conf(5) man page for details of that file format.

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |Availability	    | SUNWsvn	      |
       |Interface Stability | Committed       |
