svn server with daemontools on Debian

Howto run subversion's svnserve with daemontools on Debian:
  1. Install daemontools
  2. Adduser svn
  3. Create repository (svnadmin create /home/svn)
  4. Configure svn server
    $ cat <<EOF > /home/svn/svnserve.conf
    realm = mbfx's svn
    password-db = passwd
    anon-access = none
    auth-access = write
    $ cat <<EOF> /home/svn/passwd
    testuser = secretpasswordplease
    testman = notsoosecret

  5. Start svnserve using supervise
    $ mkdir /service/svn
    $ cat <<EOF > /service/svn/run
    exec /usr/local/bin/setuidgid svn /usr/bin/svnserve -d --foreground -r /home/svn

Have fun!

man 1 id3

Just did
$ man id3
on Debian:


The ID3 format has some shortcomings. There is a 1 in 16777216 chance of your mp3 having a certain bit-pattern, causing id3 to write over the last
128 bytes of your mp3 upon tag creation. If you add a track number to an ID3 v1.0 tag, the last two characters of the comment string will be trunĂ¢

trunĂ¢? Truncated? ;-P
