Changing the Username and Password used to access the Subversion repository

One of my teammates; Ahmad Salah from the IFX team has just faced a simple, yet annoying problem; About 2-3 days ago, he wanted to log in to the Subversion repository to access the project files and I gave him my username and password temporarily to use, and yesterday, I added his desired username and password to the repository, but we still couldn’t change the username and password (which are mine :S) so that he logs using his new username and password! He searched and discovered that all these details are found in the /home/hisusername/.subversion/auth/ folder, just delete this folder and everything will be just fine. You’ll be asked for your new username and password which will be saved, enjoy!
