Subject Re: variables in AuthzSVNAccessFile - a shortcut?
Date Mon, 02 Mar 2015 11:39:48 GMT
automatic creation of the folders/repos would be nice - I 
can imagine web based shared and/or free SVN solution must 
be having something like it already.
I assumed that for smaller setups, a scenario where users 
have their own repo with full rights next to a shared 
repo(s) with different permission, will be very common.
Then simply permission file instead of:

me = rw
you = rw

would be like I thought it could be, just permission, I'll 
try to tamper with hooks,
