    11  Yum will take care of all dependencies on which the Trac package depends (including the python-clearsilver package) and will fetch and install them for you automatically.

    64 There are numerous other ways to authenticate users, but if you care about security ''do not'' use the same authentication for comand line Subversion clients as you do for Trac. This is because Subversion keeps its passwords for command lines locally, in your home directory, in clear text.

    8787RHEL now ships with SELinux enabled by default. This means you need to make the Trac and Subversion directory accessible to the webserver. If you keep these contents under {{{/var/www/trac}}} and {{{/var/www/svn}}}, you don't need to do anything else.

    89 If you want an alternative location such as {{{/srv}}} or {{{opt}}}, and many installers have their own ideas about where these should go, follow thiese guidelines and read the notes at [http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-apache-fc3/] for details.
