Access configuration for leaves in one working copy

From: Holger Schmidt <Holger.Schmidt_at_zmdi.com>

Hi,

There is a repository with this directory tree:

root
+- dir_a
+- dir_b
| +- dir_c
| +- dir_d
+- dir_e
    +- dir_f
    +- dir_g

Because there is sensible data in there user usr_u has read/write access
only to dir_c and dir_g.

Question: How do I configure this with the path based authorization
(Apache + mod_authz_svn + AuthzSVNAccessFile) and with one working copy?

For one working copy usr_u needs to checkout the root directory. That
means he needs read access for the root, dir_b, and dir_e. Without read
access SVN denies to checkout something (initial checkout or update
within sparse working copy). So I have to remove access for dir_a,
dir_d, dir_f. That makes six directory sections:

[/]
usr_u = r
[/dir_a]
usr_u =
[/dir_b/dir_c]
usr_u = rw
[/dir_b/dir_d]
usr_u =
[/dir_e/dir_f]
usr_u =
[/dir_e/dir_g]
usr_u = rw

I constantly need to monitor the repository to remove the read right for
newly created directories.

Is there a way to configure it like this:

[/]
usr_u =
[/dir_b/dir_c]
usr_u = rw
[/dir_e/dir_g]
usr_u = rw

Please Cc me in any responses as I'm not subscribed to this list.

Thanks,
Holger
