The problem here is that there's no way for the client to "push"
authentication at the server, the way it does in CVS. Authentication is
strictly a "server pull" thing, and you've configured your server to not
automatically challenge clients. You've made it very tolerant by
putting in the "satisfy any" directive: the client asks for /, and your
authz file tells the server that there's no need to issue an auth challenge.

The "skipping" of /Ideas is actually a feature, believe it or not.

I think the only way to get the behavior you want is to disable
anonymous access completely (by removing the 'satisfy any' directive).
Then you'll be able to identify yourself as 'serhat' when you try to
checkout '/'.

Sander Striker: what do you think about this?
