we have SVN configured using a custom tunnel. Every time I commit, svnserve is started on a remote Linux machine. Thus it is possible to have several svnserves running simultaneously accessing the same repository on a network. I have found this question, but it seems somewhat different. I know that accessing the repository via file:// is dangerous. How about our setup?

Thanks for any hint!

This is pretty much how the svn+ssh protocol works, it's fine.
