RE: [SAC] WebDAV for

+1 from me, I assume mapguide and fdo webdav could then be moved from osgeo1 to the download server too...

After Martin's LDAP work and migrating the GeoTools project to OSGeo,
we now have the ability to do LDAP-enabled WebDAV on the TelaScience
blades. This means that once configured, people can connect to and place or change files with a WebDAV client. I
was wondering if there would be support for making all of the download
directories WebDAV-enabled, giving each directory access by its svn
LDAP group.

The biggest advantage of this is removing the need for SSH access for
most folks, as I think the biggest demand for shell access is simply
to copy files to the machine. If there is general support for such an
approach, I will make it happen and document it.
