    55Since 0.11, there's a general mechanism in place that allows custom permission policy plugins to grant or deny any action on any kind of Trac resources, even at the level of specific versions of such resources.
    6 
    7 Note that for Trac 0.12, `authz_policy` has been integrated in trunk branch as `tracopt.perm.authz_policy.*`

    1614 - Install [http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/configobj.html ConfigObj] (required).
    1715 - Copy authz_policy.py into your plugins directory.
    18  - Put a [http://swapoff.org/files/authzpolicy.conf authzpolicy.conf] file somewhere, preferably on a secured location on the server, not readable for others than the webuser. If the  file contains non-ASCII characters, the UTF-8 encoding should be used.
     16 - Put a [http://swapoff.org/files/authzpolicy.conf authzpolicy.conf] file somewhere (preferably on a secured location on the server, not readable for others than the webuser.
    1917 - Update your `trac.ini`:
    20    1. modify the [TracIni#trac-section permission_policies] entry in the `[trac]` section
    2118{{{
    2219[trac]
    2320...
    2421permission_policies = AuthzPolicy, DefaultPermissionPolicy, LegacyAttachmentPolicy
    25 }}}
    26    2. add a new `[authz_policy]` section
    27 {{{
     22
    2823[authz_policy]
    2924authz_file = /some/trac/env/conf/authzpolicy.conf
    30 }}}
    31    3. enable the single file plugin
    32 {{{
     25
    3326[components]
    3427...
    35 authz_policy.* = enabled
     28authz_policy = enabled
    3629}}}

    7265That kind of fine-grained permission control needs a definition file, which is the one used by Subversion's mod_authz_svn.
    73 More information about this file format and about its usage in Subversion is available in the  [http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn.serverconfig.pathbasedauthz.html Path-Based Authorization] section in the Server Configuration chapter of the svn book.
     66More information about this file format and about its usage in Subversion is available in the [http://svnbook.red-bean.com/svnbook/book.html#svn-ch-6-sect-4.4.2 Subversion Book (Per-Directory Access Control)].

    111 where ''modulename'' refers to the same repository indicated by the `repository_dir` entry in the `[trac]` section. As an example, if the `repository_dir` entry in the `[trac]` section is {{{
    112 /srv/active/svn/blahblah
    113 }}}, that would yield the following:
    114 
    115 {{{
    116 [trac]
    117 authz_file = /path/to/svnaccessfile
    118 authz_module_name = blahblah
    119 ...
    120 repository_dir = /srv/active/svn/blahblah
    121 }}}
    122 
    123 where the svn access file, {{{
    124 /path/to/svnaccessfile
    125 }}}, contains entries such as {{{
    126 [blahblah:/some/path]
    127 }}}.
     104where ''modulename'' refers to the same repository indicated by the `repository_dir` entry in the `[trac]` section.
