Re: Redux: svn+ssh, authz, insanity.

You have anon-access and auth-access. anon-access tells you what
access non-authenticated users get. auth-access tells you what access
authenticated users get. You can further modify those general rules
with authz rules.

I was re-reading some info about authz in the svnbook today and I
think that section does need some help., There is a section about
authz under the httpd section, but I don't see it under plain
svnserve.
