I am really looking forward to the day when I can do something like
this using the svn server. I can not alter Apache on my system, so
hove no choice but to use svnserve (which is great, btw).

But not being able to have per-directory access is a real problem. I
have several projects that include programmers, artists, musicians
and sound effect people. I do not what all of them to be able to
pull down the whole project. I would (for example) give artists
access to the /truck/Art folder only, etc, etc.

Currently I have them checkout from that point, and it works OK, but
I have run into problems with people not connecting to the right
point, and they pull down the whole project (Gigs of data!), or some
other sub-folder called Art. To make mattes worse, most of these
people work from home, scatted all around the country, so I can't
administer their local machines. This is also the reason I am
hoping for a "needs-lock" for file types that can be set on the server.

That said, svn is a dream compared to the other (non-pocketbook
draining) solutions.
