I setup SVN/TSVN for some users at work. On one setup (using Apache),
I wrote a CGI script that lists all directories (in the main svn repo
directory) that are infact repositories (I looked for some key
files/directories if I remember correctly --- could have probably done
this better by using a command line svn tool). I then look up a
description in a INI file (which must be manually maintained) and
present a list to the users (formatted as tsvn:http://machine/repo
urls so they can check them out by clicking the line.

For svn serve, you could write a local script that did the same thing
and wrote the information to a file somewhere (which could be served
with a web server or accessed in some other fashion). Not the best
solution, but fairly easy to implement

This is a quick start to such a script. It could easily be modified
to output HTML or any other format you want.
