Bug Description

I'm using bazaar with redmine 1.0.1, with a virtual host conf on the lines of:

        WSGIScriptAliasMatch ^/bzr/.*/\.bzr/smart$ /var/vcs/bzr/bzr-smart.py
        # Allow regular GETs to work too
        RewriteEngine on
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/bzr/.*/\.bzr/smart$
        RewriteRule ^/bzr/(.+)$ /home/code/bzr/$1 [L]
        <Location /bzr>
                DAV on
                WSGIApplicationGroup %{GLOBAL}

                AuthType Basic
                AuthName "Project membership authentication"
                Require valid-user
                PerlAccessHandler Apache::Authn::Redmine::access_handler
                PerlAuthenHandler Apache::Authn::Redmine::authen_handler
                RedmineDSN "DBI:mysql:database=redmine_default;host="
                RedmineDbUser "redmine"
                RedmineDbPass "redminedbpassword"
                RedmineCacheCredsMax 50

After creating a project, I try to push a new branch into a freshly init'ed repository, but forgot to add my user to the project, so I have no permissions to push anything into it.

The error I get is: "bzr: ERROR: Transport operation not possible: http does not support mkdir()" while an authorization error should appear to make it clear why I couldn't push the new branch.

In case it matters, the file /var/vcs/bzr/bzr-smart.py contains:

#!/usr/bin/env python
from bzrlib.transport.http import wsgi
def application(environ, start_response):
    app = wsgi.make_app(
    return app(environ, start_response)
