My server runs subversion 1.4.2 with Apache/WebDAV, which is configured with an
AuthzSVNAccessFile. Here is an excerpt of the access.authz file :


And now the point with an example :

$ svn list https://subversion/svn/test/trunk/samuel
$ svn list https://subversion/svn/test/tags
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/test/tags'
svn: PROPFIND of '/svn/test/tags': 403 Forbidden (https://subversion)
$ svn list https://subversion/svn/test/tags/samuel
$ svn copy https://subversion/svn/test/trunk/samuel
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/test/tags'
svn: PROPFIND of '/svn/test/tags': 403 Forbidden (https://subversion)
$ svn checkout https://subversion/svn/test/trunk/samuel
A samuel/private
A samuel/private/hello
Révision 21 extraite.
$ svn copy samuel/ https://subversion/svn/test/tags/samuel/v1
Révision 21 propagée.
$ svn list https://subversion/svn/test/tags/samuel

So: why for a URL -> URL copy subversion needs to check the parent directory
(/tags/, which is not allowed), while for a WC -> URL copy it does not need to
? Isn't it an inconsistency ? I would expect the same behaviour as for WC ->
URL, since I explicitely allowed path /tags/samuel/ read-write in the
