RE: SVN Path Authorization

What are the other characters supported in the apache authorization file
(AuthzSVNAccessFile)? Any documentation available?

In case if there are any human errors in the authorization file, its making
repository unavailable. Is there a tool/mechanism to check the access
configurations before restarting the apache?


For ex: without having a group, granting access to a directory will break
the repository access.

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.:




@admin = rw





@project1_subproject1Developers = rw

~project1_subproject1Developers =



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:



@admin = rw



@project1_admin = rw



@project1_subproject1Developers = rw


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.
