Groups should be prefixed with a @
@developers = rw
* = r

Paths must be in their canonical (or standard) form; in this case it should
@dba = rw

I have been bitten by this a few times.
Please note that these directories are relative from the repository root.
So assume: your repository is on http://my.svn.server/svn/repository/
Then the [/] rule applies to everything below
And the [/MyProject/devDirectories/database] applies to everything below
How all this is mapped in your working copy (C:\MyProject\... in your
example) is not relevant for this configuration
