I have an SVN repository requestable via Apache HTTPD Server 2.2.8. I want to allow anyone to update or commit on it but I want a committer name. So I must force the clients to provide an username but I don't want to check his password.

I try this:

<Location /svn>
        DAV svn
        SVNParentPath /www/svn
        AuthName "SVN Auth"
        AuthType Basic
        Anonymous_NoUserId off
        Anonymous_MustGiveEmail off
        Anonymous_VerifyEmail off
        Anonymous_LogEmail off
        Require valid-user

But it fails.

Have you got on idea on how to do this? For your help, Thanks by advance.
