Re: [Issue 2702] New - Making a directory world-readable with authz

From: Gregory Bartholomew <gregory.lee.bartholomew_at_gmail.com>

By using:
<LimitExcept GET PROPFIND OPTIONS REPORT>
   Require valid-user
</LimitExcept>

You are preventing the authz module from being called on read requests
(GET PROPFIND OPTIONS REPORT) so it cannot deny access to any part of
the repository when the request is a read regaurdless of what you have
specified in the authorization file.

I think you can do what you are trying with something like the
following in the authorization file:

[/level_one]
* = r

[/level_one/level_two]
* =
jsmith = rw
