SVN+SSH Protocol Properties

When a user connects to the SVN repository using svn+ssh protocol, first the SSH connection is established. And then files are grabbed directly from the filesystem. It is like grabbing directly through file:/// URL. So if you have multiple repositories, and for one of it you have passwords set, your security will be f*cked up. Authorization question using svn+ssh can be easily solved by setting SSH users to specific user groups and granting according ownerships to the repository folders with "700" mode.
