Re: Fine grained access control over ra_dav using... mod_authz_svn

Thank you thank you thank you!

This is sweet, and means I can set up Subversion to work really well in
my business...

One question: if I use an AuthGroupFile, will this module recognize the
groups defined in it, or do all groups have to be defined in the SVN
Access File? (can you depend on the authorization module to define
groups, and leave them out of this config?)

And a comment: +1 on reloading the config on each request (or at least
leaving this as an option)... I would very much like to be able to
update particular access files without restarting Apache. Perhaps, if
this becomes a performance hit, make this a configurable option--but
otherwise, I like the idea of having this read like .htaccess files, at
request time rather than startup. If there's another option, I'm all

Thanks again,
