Re: Path-based auth with svn+ssh

Martin,

I think you're seeing issue 2486 (
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2486 ).

A workaround for this issue is to give user joe read-access on the root of the
repository.

I've send a patch to the dev-list for this issue, but it's not accepted (yet). I
hope that it's included in svn 1.3.2.

Lieven.
