I read the thread and the issue and am not clear exactly what the problem is. You wrote:
So what exactly is broken, behaviour-wise? Is authorization done with case-insensitive username checking in the server, and the "svnauthz" tool is broken in that it fails to do case-insensitive matching of usernames? Or something else?
I just want to make sure we're proposing this behaviour change in order to fix a regression since 1.7 or a serious bug. But if the bug is only in the "svnauthz" tool then I would suggest for 1.8 we should just fix that tool to match the way authz works now.
You also wrote:
That (in other words, case sensitivity for the paths) was done in 1.7.0.
