Thank You Bert,
but what do you mean "an incomplete fix" ? and how can I vote for this? I can't believe this bug exists! Is there a work around while we wait for the fix?
Hi, See issue #3242 (http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3242) An incomplete fix should be available (if it gets enough votes) in 1.6.10; see http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/branches/1.6.x/STATUS. Bert Huijben From: Keith Theman [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]
We had been using svn 1.3. We had multiple projects in a single repository, and we had apache with mod_dav as a front end. We configured the access control list disallow root access:
but then allowed appropriate user access to their project folders:
Everything worked great, but then we updated to 1.6 and now we get permission errors unless we grant EVERYONE read access to the root of the repository! Everyone can see anything in the repository.... not good. What is going on?
