Re: Disallowing read permission for a single user

I believe the issue is the permissions from a repository-unqualified
path (say, [/]) are merged (in the union sense) with those of a specific
repository. If this is true then it seems like a bug as the SVN Book
claims the most-specific path is the one that matters.

The work around is to lock everything down, then just open up what you
need, but this makes it pretty cumbersome to manage the access control.
