Re: read-only repository view

My guess is it doesn't like that you have the Require without Authentication
configured. The way I usually do this is have the anonymous read /
authenticated & authorized write construct (see manual), and give the HTTP
host its own access file where you set * = r for [/], so authorization for
write access will always fail.

R.
