SVNServe path based authorization help.

I've been digging for three days now, but no joy.

Running basic svnserver daemon on Windows.

Let's say I have:


In case that's not clear:

We need to give the development team RW access to everything; the DBA team RW to only the "database" and the da team RW to "sql" directories.

(The directory structure is significantly more complex than that, and we have multiple active branches....)

I've tried various combinations in my authorization file:
da = harry, sally
dba = fred, george
developers = ron, hermione, neville

da =
dba =
developers = rw
* = r

@dba = rw

@da = rw

Nothing seems to work the way I expect it to. Has anyone gotten this kind of scenario to work? What's the right way of doing this?

I can do whatever needs to be done with authorization/permissions, but i cannot change the directory structure.

Any help greatly appreciated.
