 Subject: Path based Authorization


 In the section on Path-Based Authorization,
 there is an example using groups towards the end.

 calc-developers = harry, sally, joe
 paint-developers = frank, sally, jane
 everyone = harry, sally, joe, frank, sally, jane

 @paint-developers = rw
 jane = r

 >From my tests with Subversion 1.4.4, the final line "jane = r" seems to
 ignored. Jane appears to be receiving 'rw' permissions from the
 paint-developers group, overriding her own 'r' permissions.

 Assuming this is not a bug in Subversion, is it worth modifying this line,
 as not to give the impression that user permissions can decrease group
