RE: access rights mechanism for the users with Apache + SVN

Hi,
        I have defined per directory access in AuthSVNAccess file already. But, our
project requires
        that we should give -

        1) read , checkin ,checkout to the developers
        2) read , checkin checkout , ADD, delete to the Module leaders
        3) read ,checkin ,checkout ,ADD, distroy rights to admin, PL of the
project.
        (This kind of rights assignment we used to have , when we were using VSS.)

        But, it seems Subversion + Apache does not provide such distinctly defined
access mechanism for its users.
        Dont we have any alternative for this?
        Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Swati k

This syntax implies that prod and test are in a different repository
from the root.

To be correct (assuming everything is in this one repository), you
need [dump:/] for that admin user.
