[Haifux] SVN quota

It is true that users can't delete data from the SVN.
The only thing users can do is ask for additional quota. If they know that they are running out of quota in advanced, they can ask to enlarge the quota before they are out of disk space (which usually happens 01:00 ).
Then I can check if the disk space usage is justify and respond on time.

    I have a LINUX server (RHE 4) that among other things serves as SVN server (the SVN server runs over apache).
    Users can access their repository via https, but they can't login to the server (not even with ssh).
    To access the SVN, users must supply their NIS user name & password.
    Every SVN repository has it's own quota limitation.

    The question is: do SVN users have any way to test their quota?
    (I don't want to write a cron job that warns the users when they are over 80% of the quota)

  Excuse me for taking this on a tangent, but what use is the quota warning going to do? It's not as if users can delete stuff in order save space.
