Subject SVNParent authz

I am having a problem with AuthzSVNAccessFile.

Consider the case where I have two repositories, R1 and R2 Some users 
are authorized to examine R1 by going to
Other users are authorized to examine R2 by going to
But everyone should be able to see the list of repositories by going to

I can't get that to work. I am having a problem with the 
mod_dav_svn.conf command:
     AuthzSVNAccessFile /Subversion/conf/authz
If I have AuthzSVNAccessFile turned off (commented out), then all users 
can see the contents of all repositories. But if I have 
AuthzSVNAccssFile turned on, then nobody is authorized to see the list 
of repositories via "" because I can't figure out 
how to set authz to give read access to the repository collection but 
limited access to the individual repositories. Here is my closest guess 
for authz -
     everyone = andy,fred
     @everyone = r
     andy = rw
The "[/]" section is the part that is incorrect. How can I give everyone 
read access to "http:///" without giving them read access 
to "" ? Indeed, it seems as if the instant 
I turn on AuthzSVNAccessFile nobody can read "" at 

Thank you for your patience.
