Specific repository overrides the "general" repository one, i.e. it's
matched first.

Again, the more specific one wins. "harry" matches both "harry" and
"*", but the "harry" one will override the general "*" match.

Access is on paths; it doesn't matter if the path is a directory or
file, they all work.

Thanks for the feedback; I'll make a note to clarify this in the book.
