[PROPOSAL] AuthzSVNAccessFile for normal web-files

From: Peter M▄NSTER <pm_at_deltadore.com>
Date: 2006-05-10 13:10:48 CEST


what do you think about the following feature request:

I have one <Location /svn> for the repository with path based access
control (AuthzSVNAccessFile), and I would like to have some other
<Location /docs> with a normal directory structure (no svn repository)
using the same AuthzSVNAccessFile.

2 usage examples:

- TeX-files are in the repository and at each commit transformed to PDF,
  that is copied to the /docs directory with the same sub-path as the
  TeX-source in the repository. With the same access control only users who
  can read the TeX file will be able to read the PDF.

- The same for documentation generated from C-source (Doxygen).

The Apache configuration could perhaps look like this:
<Location /svn>
  DAV svn
  SVNPath /srv/svn
  AuthType Basic
  AuthName TEST1
  AuthLDAPURL "ldap://localhost/ou=people, o=Delta Dore, c=FR"
  AuthzSVNAccessFile /srv/svn/access
  require valid-user

<Location /docs>
  Path /srv/svn-docs
  AuthType Basic
  AuthName TEST2
  AuthLDAPURL "ldap://localhost/ou=people, o=Delta Dore, c=FR"
  AuthzSVNAccessFile /srv/svn/access
  require valid-user

Without this feature, I have to create a lot of <Location> blocs and
restart Apache at every modification of the access file.

Cheers, Peter
