Subject Re: restricting sub-directory permissions
Date Mon, 21 Dec 2009 06:36:57 GMT
Thanks for all the responses.   I tried all of the suggestions, but
unfortunately none of them worked.  I also downloaded and installed
subversion 1.6.5, along with apache 2.2.14 to see if maybe I needed
more recent versions.  I still have the same strange behavior, where
either the sub-directory appears to users as if it does not exist, or
all users can access it.  Very frustrating.  Seems like this is an
area of subversion functionality that would greatly benefit from some
more documentation, or some subversion developers troubleshooting why
this breaks down for so many users.
