Subject "Invalid authz configuration" verbose?
Date Fri, 04 Nov 2011 11:15:32 GMT

I have encountered from time to time the problem that someone (or an 
script) modified an authz file in such a way that it blocked the access 
completely to the repository:

     "Invalid authz configuration"

In all the cases I have seen the problem  was due to an undefined group, 
something like this:

group1 = user1, user2

group1 = rw
group2 = r

my question is, is there any way to have a better error report of the 
problem? I often have problems in some authz files which are very long, 
and it is not trivial to find the problematic group.

Do you have any suggestion?
