RE: Issue setting up authz permissions

From: Robert Kinberg <kinberg_at_tecore.com>

I tried the svn:externals approach also. This seems like it may work.
However, svn:externals are not copied when an svn copy is made? I use
TortoiseSVN and it seems like the svn:externals properties are not
preserved thru the copy.

Any thoughts?

Unfortunately that is not possible with the current mod_authz_svn
implementation.

I can suggest an alternative; put your secret stuff under /secret/trunk,
  /secret/branches, /secret/tags, and put a 'secret' svn:externals
property into /trunk. This will provide most of what you are looking
for, almost transparently.
