Accessing SVN through HTTP/WebDAV, commonly only uses basic authentication for maximum IDE and browser support (at least I believe this to be true in general, it is for our needs). But tracd only supports digest authentication. If it supported both, the same htpasswd file could be used for both systems, reducing administration.

The patch I added on #287 includes some utilities for working with htpasswd files that I could adapt to add this to tracd.

Milestone: 0.9
Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

In [2392] I added an option to tracd called --basic-auth which accepts the same format of parameters as the --auth option, but will use an htpasswd format file instead and uses the Basic authentication method.
