RE: Hook for pre-checkout?

Thanks, Dave and Ben, for your succinct explanations.

We are already authenticating passwords by LDAP, so I thought it would save work to handle group access through LDAP too.

I gave up using AuthzSVNAccessFile when I found that it could not cope with wild cards (see my postings of 20th and 21st of July). The Subversion book has only simple examples of access control and does not discuss the advantages and disadvantages of LDAP and AuthzSVNAccessFile.

I have tried your suggestion this morning and found that it does do what we want: keep users out of each other's folders. So I guess we will have to maintain groups in the AuthzSVNAccessFile and forget about using LDAP for the groups. We will still use it for passwords.

Donald
