Re: Bug or my understanding - mod_svn_authz

Before anyone gets to confused, the Good Book says:

    "By default, nobody has any access to the repository at all. That
    means that if you're starting with an empty file, you'll probably
    want to give at least read permission to all users at the root of
    the repository. You can do this by using the asterisk variable (*),
    which means "all users""

in pretty much the same section (I can't tell - I read it as one large
HTML page).

That aside, check your HTTP error and access logs for the case-type
(upper, lower, camel) of the usernames at login. Make sure what you see
in your log is the same thing that is entered in your access file
everytime. It can be real easy to type your name in lower case once or
twice, and your examples all show camel-case. If this is the case, you
may need to enter all case examples into the access file and see how
that goes.
