Hello all,

I have been having some problems with a user authenticating with apache/svn
recently.  In an attempt to make sure I was using htpasswd correctly, even
though I was sure I was, I decided it look it up in the svn docs and do a
bit of copying and pasting.  The command I needed was in chapter 6 and is
shown as follows:

htpasswd /etc/svn-auth-file -m sally

I used it and was greeted with an error which was due to the -m being placed
incorrectly.  It should look like the following:

htpasswd -m /etc/svn-auth-file sally

A patch has been included and errata has just been reported for the
published O'Reilly version of the book.
