Subject Network Repository - user with 'read only' access - \format file security
Date Thu, 17 Dec 2009 15:16:12 GMT
We have a partner who needs visibility into our SVN repository. It is a
local repository with no http server (Apache) access.

If this partner is granted Read Only permissions to the directory on the
Windows Server where the repository is stored - would that be enough to
interact with SVN? Would a checkout be allowed?

Read Only access has been provided to this directory, and all
subdirectories: \\aab1234\Common\repo

I ask - because when TortoiseSVN was used under these permissions - this was
the result:

Error: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
Error: Unable to open repository 'file://abc123/Common/repo/MyProject/trunk'

Error: Can't open file
Error: '\\aab1234\Common\repo\MyProject\trunk\format':
Error: The system detected a possible attempt to compromise security. Please
Error: that you can contact the server that authenticated you.

Any help with this issue would be appreciated. Thank You Subversion
