just guessing here: isn't there a document root specified in httpd
configuration? check in a robots.txt in the root of the svn repository?

i use https://viewvc.infrae.com/ almost on a daily bases: i can read
the developers' commments, i see what's been worked on and what not, i
can easily compare versions, i can look at the code itself, etc. and
this from any computer without having to download anything or not
having to install anything locally expect a browser. most of these
feature are not available on svn.infrae.com and a browser. i really
would miss this feature if you decide to have it closed.
