This page contains instruction for administrator of Subversion repository hosted on the departmental servers.

Adding a new user

To add a new user, do the following:

  • Go to and login with your Dei account
  • If needed, Create a new account
  • Edit the file<REPOSITORY>/conf/authz; the syntax is described on the help page on the Subversion server. Editing is done in three steps:
    • Copy the file to your computer using scp:
      scp -p <YOUR_USERNAME><REPOSITORY>/conf/authz /tmp/
    • Edit the file /tmp/authz
    • Copy the file back to the server:
      scp /tmp/authz <YOUR_USERNAME><REPOSITORY>/conf/

Creating a new account

This operation can be performed by anyone who has a valid departmental account.

  • Go to and login with your Dei account
  • Select 'Accounts' -> 'New account'
  • Fill in the data (users can subsequently change their passwords)
