I made the change just for the libgeotiff folder. Can you confirm you can only read now? Unfortunately I can't test since I only have read-rights to the repo anyway.

Hopefully my last change did the trick.

I ended up copying the pattern of the grass/ postgis / other sites

Following this:

Basically created a authz.tmpl file in /var/www/svn/repos/metacrs with these contents:

committers = @@metacrs@@

* = r
@committers = rw

* = r

Changed the /etc/apache2/includes/subversion/metacrs.conf

I remarked out the LDAP stuff except for user listing

    <Location /metacrs>
      DAV svn
      SVNPath /var/www/svn/repos/metacrs
      AuthzSVNAccessFile /var/www/svn/repos/metacrs/authz

          Include includes/
      #    Require ldap-group cn=metacrs,ou=svn,dc=osgeo,dc=org
      Satisfy Any
      Require valid-user

When to this page -

and did a pointless remove and readd.

That triggers all the authz files to be recreated based on their authz.tmpl file and I confirmed I now had a authz file in root of metacrs folder

Then did a

service apache2 reload
