He is not trying to check out the /trunk, he is checking out
/trunk/Data and /trunk/Source separately and being denied access.

I am running svnserve, not apache, so I don't know if that matters to
your execute comment. I did not see anything about execute
permissions in the docs about the authz-db file for svnserve.

This seems like a very basic thing: give someone access to only one
folder in a repository, but I just can't see what I am doing wrong.
Have other people gotten this to work (no read access!, just the
ability to checkout, update and commit one folder)? Is so, can you
post your authzfile?
