Help with svn-acl

Hello All,

Thanks for listening. I have recently installed SVN for my company
and I am tasked with locking it down on a per directory basis (which
is a good idea, and which I intended to do all along).

I have the following pieces in the config for this:

In the apache config file I have :
Include E:/svnconf/subversion.conf

In the subversion.conf file I specify:
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Geeks Repo"
AuthUserFile E:/svnconf/secret

Require valid-user

AuthzSVNAccessFile E:/svnconf/access.conf

In the access.conf file I have the following:
eng = john, joe, dave,
@eng = rw
* = r
joe = rw

However, only the [/] is working, the [/trunk/brainstorm] section is
not. I have attempted to specify the name of the repository which I
*thought* was 'geeks-repo' like this: [geeks-repo:/trunk/brainstorm],
but that also doesn't work. When I browse to the repository in
firefox I get "Revision 17:/", which makes me think that I had the
name of the repository wrong!!

So my questions, initially, are two-fold:

1. is there a good way to determine the name that should go before
the : (colon), or for determining the names of all repositories on a

2. Is the AuthzSVNAccessFile method for controlling access the
favored method or is there a better way I have not determined?
