Re: NIS and Group control

Once more, I promise. I've done everything, and it seems there are
still some tweaks that need doing that haven't been documented, so
once more. svnperms.conf is in /svn/repos/conf, svnperms.py and
pre-commit are in /svn/repos/hooks. This is what they look like:

group1 = tlove2

[Ripped straight from subversion source. Do modifications need to be made?]

[Template, only with]
svnperms.py -r "$REPOS" -t "$TXN" || exit 1
[instead of the other two "exit 1" lines]

httpd.conf looks like:
<VirtualHost *>
DocumentRoot "/svn/repos"
ServerName svntest.my.server.com
<Location "/">
DAV svn
SVNPath /svn/repos
AuthName "Please Login"
AuthType Basic
AuthPAM_Enabled on
Require valid-user

That's everything I've modified. I can access the repository as
either the group user or as a non-group user. Both users are
authenticated through NIS, neither user is a member of a group
"group1" in /etc/passwd, SVN server is running Fedora Core 5. I want
to let the group user have all permissions and the non-group user be
unable to see the code. Can I even do this with NIS authentication,
or do I need to have a cron job dump the NIS table to a file for
subversion to use over svnserve?

Paranoia? No. I'm implementing this for a Comp. Sci professor, who
is very concerned about code theft/plagiarism among his students.

Thanks for any help you can give, I'm very stuck here.
