If you have some users that you want to have read-only but don't want to
allow annonymous access, the easiest way to do it is to only give access to
the repo to the "writers" and then use a post-commit hook to check-out a
copy to a read-only file share on the server and use the file server to
control access.

Subject: Access controll with svnserve


We're using svnserve for serving our repositories. It was clear to me that
the the possibilities for access control are quite limited, but I would like
to ask whether I got the things really right:

In Chapter 6 of the Suberversion book, section "Set access controls" it is
"Notice that svnserve only understands blanket access control. A user either
has universal read/write acccess, universal read access, or no access".

This would be fine to me, I find however no possibility to define the access
level for each user - I just can define the access level for the two
user-groups "anon-access" and "auth-access". Am I missing something?

I know you can use Apache for more complex access control, but I prefer the
simple setup of svnserve. Are there any plans to add an access level for
each user or even control to specific paths within the repository?
