I’m thinking you should make the change then we look on staging and revert if

It’s a quick test if inadvertently published it’s not a big deal.
do you need the test to see how it looks like? I think we all can imagine how a 
directory looks like in a browser, right? ;-)
We can imagine it, but it would be good to see it once.

The standard directory view of an Apache HTTP Server looks quite "simple" but it can be tweaked a lot through the .htaccess file.

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 through
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
