Re: Strange behaviour of svnserve authz

I have the same problem, exactly as described, but with a later version of
svn:
svnserve, version 1.4.3 (r23084)
   compiled Jan 25 2007, 11:15:28

The following repository back-end (FS) modules are available:

* fs_fs : Module for working with a plain file (FSFS) repository.

My sense is they aren't really supporting the svnserve scenario much.

curious: do you have more than one repository? I copied my conf file from an
old repository to a new one, swapped out the repo names in the authz file,
and nothing worked. (same passwd, same groups, everything else), even though
the old repository worked fine. So the new repo seemingly can't handle the
new config, unless I rip it all out (disable the authz file), at which point
it works like a charm, but of course I can't configure paths, etc,.
