I use svk with several large repositories on a fast local network. Up until now, I have accessed these repositories via NFS. For a variety of reasons, I would like to limit access to the repositories to go through http: or svn: to a centralized internal server. Now, I know that I could set up a local mirror for the http: or svn: repository, but I am not at all satisfied with this arrangement. The repositories are large, backed up regularly, and I have fast access to them, so there is no need to mirror them. In fact, it looks like mirroring would actually get in the way for me. I really would like to be able to do this: svk depotmap /central/ and have it work as transparently as something like this does for access via NFS: svk depotmap /central/ /hosts/fastinternalhost/central/repo Yes, this means that I do want all accesses for the repository to go through the http: (or svn:), without any mirroring or syncing.
