At one point, enabling the 'http:' checkout gateway was a sure-fire
recipe for getting SVN's knickers in a twist, which is why we disabled
it. Or maybe that was ViewCSV.
Actually, it was BekeleyDB. :)
The main obstical was that it required apache 2 and, at the time
we were running apache 1 and I didn't want to spend the time
figuring out the apache access.
In any case, I would guess that you might persuade folks to allow
DAV-based checkout (which is what svn-over-http is), but you are likely
to have to write it up as a proposal, including specific information
about the Apache / SVN configuration changes required.

Yes, definitely. The answer is the same as when you asked for it two
years ago (: the WebDAV stuff is slow (which may be a reason not to
allow annonymous http: checkouts, too), and the credentials mechanism is
built entirely around the contributor's SSH key..
I would support HTTP anonymous checkouts. I'm really against
writable HTTP checkouts because I consider the credentials
mechanism for HTTP access to be extremely lame. Despite out
lame program for uploading keys, I find the ssh-based access
mechanism to be far more usable and secure.
