Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

I use subwebs - subdirectories. E.g. MyWeb.SubWeb1

I would like to create a subweb that is private - MyWeb.PrivateSubWeb.

(Why? Because TWiki ACLs are hard to set on a per-topic basis.)

Much to my surprise, it turns out that MyWeb.PrivateSubWeb.WebPreferences ACLs such as DENYWEBVIEW are ignored. Instead, the ACLs of the parent web is used: MyWeb.WebPreferences.

WORKAROUND: do not use SubWebs to control access.

I tried to submit this as a bug in http://develop.twiki.org/~develop/cgi-bin/view/Bugs/WebHome, but was not able to make this bug reporting interface work, as reported in text at the bottom of Support.WebHome

This is discussed further in Item2815. Merged this there. CC
