Authz File for MapServer

Hi guys: We'd like to support two different groups for svn access for MapServer. One being the current mapserver group and another for docs. I created a template authz file (see attachement) as described at:

I'm not sure it's quite right though. We need to limit access to /*/docs since the docs will accompany branches I believe. Not sure if one can do wildcards in these files. Please let me know what changes I need to make. Thanks...

OK, the new mapserver_docs LDAP group has been created, currently with only sdlime as a member. It can be administered at:

I have updated the subversion respository to use the authz file slightly modified to:

committers = @@mapserver@@
docs = @@mapserver_docs@@

* = r
@committers = rw

* = r
@committers = rw
@docs = rw

This configuration only grants permissions on /trunk/docs (not branches or tags) to the mapserver_docs group. I am doubtful whether this limitation will matter, but significant time spent researching the authz format failed to turn up details on wildcards.

I have not tested the mapserver_docs access to the docs tree myself, though I have confirmed normal commiters can still update it.
