Hi, Bob,

To be honest, I think your upper management should re-think this detail of their decision.

First, anchoring everything at the "checkout" operation is a bit too specific - what about operations like "export", "update" or "switch" which can also bring in new data which has not been in the local working copy before?

And second, having a high hurdle before a "checkout" will lead to teammates exchanging working copies directly, keeping zip-files of those "on stock" in case they "need it again later", and other attempts to circumvent it.

One possible solution I could think of is that they need to use a different user name for that specific repository - e. G. instead of "foobar", they need to enter "foobar-I-know-it-is-confidental" using the same password as for their normal account.

Another possibility would be to hide the server behind a proxy, and the proxy requires a separate proxy authentication.

But none of them are implemented "out of the box" with stock SVN.

Best regards
