If no one else chimes in, I will do this later today. This will effect

under the main website tree that have no "index.html" file and are
presumably linked in by something.

My current dilemma involves having to upload over 500 QA manual test cases
into an area. It would be far more convenient to just let them go to "list
mode" if you will rather than creating an index file for them, especially
since I'm fairly certain, we may not want to keep/use all of them.

ah, now it's clear. :-) OK it's a pain to create 500+ links in a HTML file which are also different to each other.

So, yes, here it can make sense to alow to browse the directory directly and it would be fine for me.

But I'm totally -1 to allow this for every directory and globally.

Yes, we are open source, but this doesn't mean we need to make everything open to everyone. When something is needed it's allowed to ask for it. ;-)

I would like  to change our .htaccess file for

This would be changing the first line of .htaccess from this:

to this:

Options +Includes +MultiViews +Indexes

tested with my local setup and all good. This would allow for
files in a given area without the need for an index.html file with
the files.

I had no idea what "+Indexes" will do. With a quick search I found this

Yes? no? thoughts?

Are you suggesting to use this option as globally or for special
directories only?

Yes, I was suggesting this and knew the consequences as described in the
link you sent. Given that our website is accessible in its entirety
browsing svn, I didn't think enabling this globally would be so different
from that.

If globally then I don't think that we should present the raw files of
any directory when there is no index file available. This isn't simply
the way we should go.

OK. What are your feelings on enabling this in selected directories when
