How can I create a read-only user (for access from another websvn server) on a Collabnet Edge SVN server? I do have a level of administrative rights through the web interface as well as direct server access.

I have seen reference to a web interface that either isn't in 'my' version or I don't have access to for some reason. In general, this seems to be handled by the svn_access_file. It started as:

* = rw

I created a user named readonly and applied the ~ operator.

* = r
~readonly = rw
