Would it be possible to provide some example data? I think you might get better answers if you could provide a couple of example repository structures and the expected output you'd want from traversing them. – mlschechter Sep 19 '10 at 0:39

SVN by itself doesn't have any concept of passwords, it's only when you reference an SVN repository through something like Apache (mod_authz) that you are prompted for a username and password. So if you can execute the sudo command then you can also execute this command

svn list --recursive file:///var/lib/svn/repos/b1me/products/payone/generic/code/core
