Re: Directory level security (svnserve)

O.K. I've looked into getting this script working on a Windows Server,
but am having some problems and was wondering if anyone could help.

I'm running Windows Server 2K, onto which I've installed ActivePerl from
ActiveState. I've set up enough of the script to get it going, but when
I attempt to commit something I receive an error about svnlook running
with no output. If I attempt to run the script from the command line on
the server (admittedly with a bogus transaction number), I get the
following messages.

G:\>G:\SVNSource\Admin\Scripts\commit-access-control.pl
"G:/SVNSource/Experiments" "1a"
G:/SVNSource/Experiments/commit-access-control.cfg
Running G:/svn/bin/svnlook.exe author G:/SVNSource/Experiments -t 1a
'-' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable
program or batch file.
G:\SVNSource\Admin\Scripts\commit-access-control.pl:
`G:/svn/bin/svnlook.exe author G:/SVNSource/Experiments -t 1a' failed
with no output.

Can anyone provide any ideas to what is going wrong? Just out of
interest, I've also tried replacing the -t argument with just t, and I
still get the same message.

Thanks
Jay

Sorry for my naff Outlook reply!!!

I think what I'm after is the sort of security mod-authz-svn offers.
Having had a quick look, the pre-commit example probably would do what
I'm after - just have to convert it to Windows!

Thanks
Jay

What is "directory level security"? You can use the same
mechanism to write-protect any area of your repository as in CVS,
using the pre-commit hook. There is even an example of such a
hook; i think it is in the contrib directory. Read access is
blanket for an entire repository unless you use a solution
specific to a single ra layer, such as mod-authz-svn.
