Bug#719655: ITP: svnstsw -- SVNServe Tunnel-mode Setuid/setgid Wrapper

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Geoffrey Thomas <gthomas@mokafive.com>

* Package name    : svnstsw
  Version         : 1.4
  Upstream Author : Richard Hansen <svnstsw@ir.bbn.com>
* URL             : http://www.ir.bbn.com/~rhansen/svnstsw/

  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : SVNServe Tunnel-mode Setuid/setgid Wrapper

svnstsw is a wrapper around svnserve that sets the tunnel user equal to the username of the user that started the wrapper. It is intended be made setuid or setgid by the local administrator, to allow local users on a shared system to invoke svnserve without having direct access to the repository itself.


svnstsw's upstream source is in contrib/ in the Subversion repository, but contrib/ is not distributed as part of the Subversion release tarball. I'm copying the subversion packagers in case they have thoughts, want to co-maintain, etc.
