RE: Not authorized

Christian,

simply omit the line

* =

within the [/source] section, and it should work fine.

This is because initially nobody at all has access (neither read nor write) to
/Source, so there is no need to explicitly revoke permissions for "everyone".
After all research I have done on this topic it seems to me as if a "deny"
always wins over an "allow" that is placed on the same item which is why you
can't follow the approach "first of all deny everything from everyone and then
grant permissions as needed".

Hope this helps,

Thomas
