I don't think the clients take access control into account. Access
control is managed by the server software or file system permissions.

ViewVC or Trac will do this as it's just read-only data.

In order to modify a file, you need to checkout the directory that
contains that file to a working copy, edit and submit from there. Now I
suppose you could create a temp dir, do a checkout, make your
modification, submit, and then delete the temp dir, but that seems like
a lot of overhead which is why I asked if every user would permanently
got a server-side working copy.

Regarding your access control needs, have you looked at CollabNet
Enterprise? I never had the opportunity to dig into this area with them,
but I was under the impression they had a web gui for managing
permissions.

thanks justin...

ok.. seems to be a screw up in my explaining what i'm looking for/need

given that we already have solid svn client apps for windows/linux
(tortiseSVN) there ia already a way for users to be able to checkin/out
files from with a given repository. as i understand the client apps,
they also take into account the user access/roles assigned to the user
for the given files/folders within the svn repos.

what i need in addition to these client apps is the ability to track the
status of the files/folders within the svn repos.

the svn repos forms the basis of managing the apps for the overall
system that's being created. the apps go through different processes
during development (dev/test/production). in addition, the apps are
grouped together as they're run in the production part of the system.
this has to be reflected in the svn repos structure, which means i need
a way of allowing a user to be able to modify/manage the svn
files/folders within the svn repos. i also need a way of
managing/assigning the user roles/access rights for the given
files/folders.

i'd like to be able to handle these kinds of functionality in the
webapp.

the webapp would:
 -manage user roles/access rights
 -create access rights for files/folders
 -create/delete folders
 -upload/delete/copy/move files
 -move files from between folders
 -copy/move folders (and file contents)
 -show status history(comments) of a given file
 -etc...

hopefully this clears things up a little more..

So in this mythical web app, each user has a WC on the server?

So we want something that does what ViewVC and trac do, as well as
being a web based full featured svn client, AND is able to access and
modify the authen/authz configs for the repositories and this mythical
web app itself through said webapp?
Sounds like a tall order. Sounds killer.
