this sporadically on SVN users. Is this a valid feature request to propose
to the SVN team, or is there an existing feature request (I'll start looking

Subject: How to hide restricted directories using SVN's path-based

Hello all,

We're setting up path-based authorization to allow/deny access to certain
folders in our repository based on usernames. This is working great so far
and, as expected, SVN doesn't list the child files/folders downstream of
restricted folders. However, the restricted folders themselves are still
shown in a SVN directory list. Is there a way to prevent restricted
directories from showing?

For example, given this sample repo:


We've restricted /Trunk/Folder for a user but SVN shows him:


Can SVN hide /Trunk/Folder for this user?
