Re: How much libsvn_repos wrap around the libsvn_fs

Apache is used only to authorize the remote user accessing the repository
via Internet. In the case of local user access to repository, Apache is not
coming in picture. To authorize the local user request, subversion supports
the templetes for hook scripts which will only athorize the user request for
commit operations. If anyone knows how to implement the read and write
sentinels in Subversion then I think the local user request accessing for a
resource can be authorized by these read and write sentinels. Please keep in
mind that the protocol for implementing the read and write sentinels is yet
to be implemented.
