Re: "Authorization failed" stops me in my tracks

Yep, that was it. I'm amazed that there weren't more posts out there
about this. I have two different books on Subversion and although
they both do talk about this file, neither of them mention it in the
"getting started" section so I missed it completely. I guess I must
be unusually blind.

One thing still confuses me - why was I able to do an import if I
didn't have write access???

Thanks a lot for your help,

janine
