[Pushmi-users] Pushmi and PAM authentication

Hi All,

We have Pushmi up and running but we would like it to work with PAM 
authentication. Pam authentication is already in place on our server and 
works for Subversion. But once we add Pushmi to the mix, PAM 
authentication now fails.

Here is the section where we configure the master. The Apache version is 

<Location /svn>
        DAV svn
        # any "http://hostname/svn/NAME" URL will map to 
        SVNParentPath /qad/local/subversion
        SVNAutoversioning on
        PerlSetVar SVNPath /qad/local/subversion/temp_repository
        PerlSetVar Pushmi /usr/bin/pushmi
        PerlSetVar PushmiConfig /etc/pushmi.conf
        AuthType Basic
        AuthPAM_Enabled on
        AuthName "SVN Repositories"
                Require valid-user
                #PerlAuthenHandler Pushmi::Apache::AuthCommit

If we uncomment the line "#PerlAuthenHandler Pushmi::Apache::AuthCommit" 
even though users get prompted at check-in time it fails to recognize the 
passwd through PAM.
If we take it out, the commit is succesful.

Is this a valid configuration? Do we need to have the same apache 
configuration in the slave server than in the master server?

Thanks in advance!
