Would it be hard to add an [no]visible right or something, which would
prevent uses from even just seeing a file or dir? So that if they checkout
or update the repository, they won't even notice the existence of the files
or dirs on which they have no view access.
This would be very handy when for example different outsiders need to known
only about the part of the repository containing stuff they're related to
Another question about ACLs: are they supposed to be set at the server or
by clients? (just wondering cause I have some trouble getting ACL to work
Thanks a lot,
