I had the same problem when I set up SVN1.5.x (way back then). Could not get arounf the fact that users needed R-access to root of repos, so I ended up with something like the following to prevent users from having R-access to entire repos.:
The ~ is a negation, meaning "all users not in the group"

Can I set up an AuthZSVNAccessFile that doesn't allow read to the root, but does allow read an read/write to sub-paths. I want something like this:
I would then give the devs the url to the subproject and they could check that out. I'm pretty sure I've done something like this in the past, but now it won't let me check out unless I have read access to the parent paths.
Thanks for any help.
