How to provide username/password for the Svn task?

Looks like this is not possible, otherwise I guess someone would have answered by now.

Feature request! :-)

Jozsef, any ideas?

It is not supported, only cached credentials are. Storing cleartext passwords in MSBuild project files doesn't seem like a good idea anyway.

We load the password into a property from an external source, so it is not cleartext inside the msbuild project file.

I guess it is just forwarding two parameters to the command line...would it be added if I provide a patch?

Feel free to send a patch. Like Jozsef says, there may be security implications. You may not store them in the file, but they may be logged to file during the build.
