I found a number of similar reports in the archives, but no definitive
answers. When checking out from a repo that does not allow anonymous read
access ("* = "), I get the following error at the client:
svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/myproject/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: Not authorized to open root of edit operation
The Apache error log shows:
A failure occurred while driving the update report editor [500, #220000]
Not authorized to open root of edit operation [500, #220000]
Adding "*=r" to the repo entry in the authz file allows this to succeed
fine. This leads me to suspect that the svn client is attempting to do
"something" anonymously, before authenticating.
Client: Ubuntu Gutsy, using the stock subversion (1.4.4dfsg1-1ubuntu3)
Server: Debian Etch, using the stock libapache2-svn (1.4.2dfsg1-2) package.
Authentication: libapache2-mod-auth-kerb (5.3-1) package, using negotiate
(not simple passwd!)
Relevant Apache configuration block:
Relevant snippet from authz file:
myuser = rw
This repository must not be anonymously accessible, so setting "*=r" is not
an option. Does anyone have any insight to the cause of my problem?
