Running SubVersion svnserve on Mac OS X

In my previous entry I posted how to get SubVersion on a Mac.

One of the things people start asking after knowing how to run the client, is how to run a server. Most people know that svnserve is a good option and get a repository going with that. Check the free online book I mentioned in my previous post to get a feel for how to set up a repository using svnadmin.

But now you want that pesky svnserve to launch on startup. Best candidate to handle that for you on a mac is launchd.

But it is a bit of an involving procedure to go though. Anyway, this is the link that got me going.

Do read the entry at the link completely. Doing so will save you lots of headaches.
