I've suggested this on the SVN mailing list, if they like it, is there any chance trac would be willing to implement it?

Or possibly, add it anyway?

My problem is, svn's solution is to use <Location> directives to match paths with regex and to use a different authz file per path, so basically, I can do /

  • = r

.*/src/ ← done through apache

  • =

The problem is, trac has no way of recognizing this and only sees the * = r, and I'd rather avoid ~300 lines in my authz file to work around this for all of my branches/tags.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

SVN is currently the reference for the authz format, so there's no point in implementing syntaxes it doesn't support. If they choose to support more powerful path matching they may choose to use globs instead of regexes, which would leave Trac incompatible with the standard. If/when SVN implements this feature please reopen this ticket.
