> The recent failure of svn access was caused by a faulty pit-authorization-template file.
AFAICT there were some references to non-existent groups.
> AIUI there are some checks to ensure that only validated auth files should be deployed;
this does not seem to have happened here.
> If possible the checks should be improved to reduce the chance of this happening again.
> It looks as though there is a pre-commit check here:
> modules/subversion_server/files/hooks/pre-commit-infra
> However it does not check pit-auth. Maybe it should.
> Alternatively, maybe the script that generates the output from the template files could
detect problems and return an error code which could be used to abort the update.
