[Haifux] SVN quota

Hello Max

Home folder is on one file system and the SVN repository is on another file 
This is because home folders are limited by user quota while SVN projects 
are limited by group quota.
If the 2 folders would be on the same file system then every write to the 
SVN repository will eat from the users quota (which I don't want).

Shalom Shcharim!
Possibly, the repositories are located on the same storage device as
users' homes,
so they might be able to delete other files to release some space,
but you're completely right, the repository can only grow up :-)
