RE: authorization - how can I set?

Peter,

svnserve has taken an authz file since version 1.3.
Concerning the contents of this file everything stated within the SVN
book holds also with the excception of repository names preceding
repository paths.
I have been using per-path authorization in conjunction with svnserve
since months without running into any trouble.
Maybe you are bothering with the same misunderstanding that I did too:

@duck = donald,daisy,hewey,dewey,louie

....

[/some_directory]
@duck donald = r
daisy = rw

First I had expected this to grant read permissions on /some_directory
to donald, read/write to daisy and none at all to the nephews.
But, in reality, noone is granted anything at all since apparently a
revoke "wins" over every grant on the same directory.
Instead, you should perhaps move to

@nephews = hewey,dewey,louie
@duck = donald,daisy,@nephews
....

[/some_directory]
@nephews donald = r
daisy = rw

Good luck,

Thomas
