I posed a question in a previous thread about setting up an svn server but 
I don't think I was very clear.

I have attempted to setup svnserve to replace my local cvsup mirror but 
cannot find step by step instructions on how to configure it.  I can't 
make what I've found work.  Is there a port or cookbook approach to 
setting up an svn server similar to ports/cvsup-mirror?
