Subject SVNListParentPath without path based authz checks?
Date Mon, 10 Aug 2015 18:22:49 GMT
Hi all,

I'm currently trying to implement access to my svn repos using
mod_dav_svn and all my repos have a authz file to define who can
access which paths. I would like to be able to have a listing of all
available repos without the need for any authorization, but instead
only if any path within the repo gets accessed authorization should be

My configuration is as follows:

>        <Location "/bin">
>                DAV                             svn
>                SVNParentPath                   /home/ams_svn_repos/Bin
>                SVNListParentPath               On
>                AuthzSVNReposRelativeAccessFile authz
>        </Location>

The problem now is that my repos are only visible in the dir listing
if I change my authz file to give everyone read access in "/", which
is of course not what I want. If I don't the repo's name is not
mentioned in the listing and from reading through the logs I can see
that the authz file gets processed and specifies denied access.

If I remove the processing of the authz file the listing works of
course, but I need path based access checking for the contents of the

Is this behavior by design or am I doing something wrong? From my
point of view "SVNListParentPath" is managed outside of the repo and
therefore authz should be ignored on that level.

Thanks for your input!

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
