In fact, as far as I know, you can't do this with Subversion, there's no
concept of a hidden folder. The only concepts you have are read-access and
write-access. Disabling read-access on a folder, which is what you have done
in this setup, disables the access to the contents of that folder (
subfolders and files ).

You can workaround this behaviour by making a 'private' folder, with
read-access disabled for user 'testuser', and then put your webproducts
folder inside that 'private' folder.

Lieven.
