Subversion itself can't change the password. Whether the user can change it (outside of Subversion) depends on the authentication method you're using, and that's defined by the server, not the client.

Has anyone in here successfully integrated SVN with Active Directory for user authentication? We are currently using FreeIPA and user account management is the bane of my existence. If anyone has or knows of any documentation for integrating Active Directory with SVN (preferably 1.9 since we are going to upgrade to that version) that would be much appreciated.

Is there a way to detect that current directory is the root of SVN repository by reading files into .svn directory ? I think "svn info" could be used for that. Problem is that some machines may not have access to "svn" command line (if using tortoise and svn is not in command PATH for example).

In case "svn info" (or any other command line) is the only way, what would be the proper way to do it ?

I have the kick start file where my root password is store like

# Root password
rootpw --iscrypted $1$1SItJOAg$UM9n7lRFK1/OCs./rgQtQ/
# System authorization information
auth --useshadow --passalgo=sha512

Is there any way to decrypt the password and get it as plain text. I know single user mode works but my case it in remote site.
