How and where does Fisheye keep Subversion user name and password? It is not preferred that one user logs in to Subversion and access code base in case user name and password are revealed.
How does Fisheye deal with security issues in general?
FishEye stores repository configuration information, such as username and password, in <FishEye_Home_Directory>/config.xml. This is a sample SVN configuration found in config.xml:

We are intending to use Crowd in near future. Can Crowd be a solution for this, in general what are our options to hide user name and password information ?
