Re: Controlling update and/or commit access to a repository URL

Hi Edward,

    Yes, you can do this, though it's not built into the repository, it
can be done in the web server, see this link for more information:

http://svnbook.red-bean.com/svnbook/ch06s04.html#svn-ch-6-sect-4.4

    It could also be done via a start-commit hook script, to check the
user and the directories being modified, to see if they are authorized
to make those changes:
