Snow Leopard and my local SVN repository

Quick note – Snow Leopard hosed my svn.conf file on upgrade; it may do it to you 😉  Figured this may save someone a minute or headache…
I had my Subversion configuration details in its own file residing in ‘/etc/apache2/other/svn.conf’ where I declared my password file, etc.  Upgrading to Snow Leopard ‘erased’ this file (among other conf files) and, suddenly, repo went puff.  Re-creating this file and restarting Apache fixed this.
