      Description

      After installing via Extension Manager and following install instructions, using the tool to list entries generates an error:

      error while listing entries: svn: Cannot create directory '/usr/share/tomcat7/.subversion/auth/svn.simple'
      

      This can be patched via the shell as follows:

      sudo mkdir /usr/share/tomcat7/.subversion
      sudo chown tomcat7:tomcat7 /usr/share/tomcat7/.subversion
      

      Note however that this requires access to the command line and sudo privileges.
