Hi Greg,

Yes, that one gives user-level permissions, do you know if its possible
to take a group approach? Eg a member of a 2003-group can access
/svn/repos/<somedir> etc

(group control rather than a flat file)

Apache authenticates the user against AD.

Apache authorises the user using the Subversion module mod_authz_svn
(http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.4/svn.serverconfig.pathbasedauthz.html
)
giving access (or not) various paths within the repository.

So really it's a combination of Apache & svn.

Greg
