Can you provide some more info:
(1) What you have shown is the directory structure in the working copy,
which potentially reflects the one on the server. But I just want to make
sure that all directories including MyProjects is part of the repository.
(2) I assume you have set (or uncommented) the password-db and authz-db
config parameters in the svnserve.conf file.
(3) When you say "Nothing seems to work the way I expect it to", what
exactly happens. With the given access control file, what works and what
(4) I am not absolutely sure, but if my memory serves me right, the case
where you have provided " * = r", will let the all users including dba and
db to read that directory. I am not sure whether that is a bug or if it is a
bug, if it is fixed in later versions. I think early 1.4.x had that issue.
