svn+ssh, authz, insanity.

Hi, all.

I've a repository set served out of Apache without a problem.

I would also like it to work out of svn+ssh. To that end I
made the svnserve binary on that server setuid to the Apache
account (which is sufficiently under-privileged for this to be

At first I tried to edit svnserve.conf on each repository to
point to the Apache authorization file, but that failed.
All write access attempts get "authorization failed."

I've verified that svnserve runs as apache, but
uses 'omri' for the user account. So I edited svnserve.conf
to point to authz, and then used strace to verify that authz
does in fact get opened and read.

But now, nothing I put in the small authz file seems
to work, even though I am not trying any subdirectory
fiddling, just access to the entire repository.

omri = rw


also fails.


What am I supposed to do here?
Thanks for any and all help.
