RE: How to make the "tags" folder immutable?

Hi Shrinivasan,

You have two options:

1) As Andy suggested, use "authz" or path-based authorization to limit
write access. This choice is limited because it doesn't support a very
elegant form of pattern matching for the paths. If you often change the
list of projects/areas, you may find this requires constant

2) Develop a "pre-commit" hook using your favorite scripting/coding
language. This allows you to use a fancier form of path pattern matching
that can reduce your administration time.

No hook needed. Deny write access to the tags directory for everyone
except those who are permitted to create tags.
