New hack SvnAuthzPatch, created by jiangxin

Patch for new subversion svn_authz format


Trac can apply ACL for souce code browser through authz_file option. Yet svn_authz support is quite obsolete.

  • do not support [aliases] section;
  • do not support $anonymous and $authenticated;
  • if multiple rules matched in one section, the maximum rights is returned. But it is not the case in Trac.

This patch add aliases support, and fix a certain bug of svn_authz support in Trac.

I alos add DocTest in
