Conflict with Trac's fine grained permissions

Reported by: mitar Owned by: kisg
Priority: normal Component: SvnAuthzAdminPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: mmitar@…, chrisheller Trac Release: 0.11


Because SvnAuthzAdminPlugin uses authz_file configuration parameter setting it enables Trac's fine grained permissions. The problem is if this is unwanted.

I would suggest SvnAuthzAdminPlugin first tries authz_file configuration parameter, if it does not find any, it tries svn_authz_file configuration parameter (or a parameter in a SvnAuthzAdminPlugin section) and if also this fails, it fails with an error message. And similarly for authz_module_name parameter.

So an user will be able to decide whether to use authz_file or SvnAuthzAdminPlugin parameter.

The only place where this setting is read is in the init() method of the SvnAuthzAdminPage class, which is at the top of svnauthz/ So, it should be fairly easy to change.

SvnAuthzAdminPlugin - you mean you want to browse freely, and anyway restrict access on svn? this seems strange ... mark as won't fix therefor.
