svn commit failing - username not sent on the MERGE webdav command

Per the webpage - I am not a regular subscriber (yet) so please cc

I am trying to implement path based authentication with webdav over http.
It looks like it is failing because there is no userid specified on the
webdav MERGE command when it attempts to finalize the commit.




In this case if my auth access file has:



Svnadmins = gjohnson



* = rw

@svnadmins = rw

@edi-dev = rw

@bldadmin = rw


I can commit a change as user 'gjohnson'. No problem.


However we don't want it wide open like this. If I remove the * = rw like



svnadmins = gjohnson



@svnadmins = rw


(note my username (gjohnson) is a member of the svnadmins group so should
have rw access)


And attempt to commit a change I get: (Client Windows 2012 - subversion


D:\src\svn\cedi>svn commit pom.xml

Sending pom.xml

Transmitting file data .done

Committing transaction...

svn: E175013: Commit failed (details follow):

svn: E175013: Access to
'/ec-svn/branches/eCommerce/proto_3.x/' forbidden

svn: E175013: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:

svn: E175013: 'D:\src\svn\cedi\svn-commit.4.tmp'


The same thing happens if I specify my userid directly:



gjohnson = rw


If I look at the http transaction log I see the following sequence: - gjohnson [03/Aug/2017:20:40:12 +0000] "OPTIONS
/ec-svn/branches/eCommerce/proto_3.x/ HTTP/1.1" 200 186 "-"
"SVN/1.9.5 (x64-microsoft-windows) serf/1.3.9" - gjohnson [03/Aug/2017:20:40:12 +0000] "OPTIONS

404 - "-" "SVN/1.9.5 (x64-microsoft-windows) serf/1.3.9" - gjohnson [03/Aug/2017:20:40:12 +0000] "PUT

/ec-svn/branches/eCommerce/proto_3.x/ HTTP/1.1" 403 397 "-"
"SVN/1.9.5 (x64-microsoft-windows) serf/1.3.9" - gjohnson [03/Aug/2017:20:40:12 +0000] "DELETE

This looks like it follows what I know (via google) from the protocol used.


Note that the MERGE line (line 7 - 2nd from the last) does *not* have a user
identified - others have ' - gjohnson' but this has
' - -'. This seems to be the command that is failing. If the
auth file had '* = rw' it would pass - since a user is not required in that


Could this be the cause of the 'permission denied' and, if so, is there a
way to get subversion to send the username? (or any other way to fix it?).


Thank you - Greg
