Well, it seems you first need to answer the question of whether the 100s
of folders should be one repository or many. It's not always an easy
question to answer, but one obvious way to answer it is... Will you ever
want to copy between folders? If so, it's one repository.

Assuming it's one repository, authz will work just fine for allowing
specific users access to one part of the repository and not the other,
or read to one and read/write to another, etc. However, I'm not aware of
any nice front end to edit the authz file, but it's just a text file.

We've deployed svn in a situation where I both have many repositories,
and many projects in a common repository. We use a common (shared)
passwd and authz file for all the repositories, and right now we edit
them by hand. We are working on something more "friendly", but it's not
anywhere near ready yet.

Subject: svnserve/authz mod questions..
i'm looking at being able to do a project using subversion. the project
would have 100s of folders, with different files in the folders. i'd
like to be able to automatically manage the ability of users to be able
to access the information within the folders/files.
however, the tools that i've seen so far, (svnmgr/insurrection) don't
have the ability to manage user access at the folder/file level.
so... my question, should i look into modifying these tools to provide
folder/file level user access.. which could be a pain!!! or do i take
the easy way, and essentially allow each folder to become its' own
repository, which means i have 100s of little small repositories, but i
could place them all under the same dir...
in theory, i would/should/could potentially use the same svnserve/authz
file for the user access to the repositories as well...
