You mean something like this?
<Location "/svn">
        DAV svn
        SVNParentPath /var/lib/svn/projectA
        SVNListParentPath On
        AuthBasicProvider ldap
        AuthType Basic
        AuthzLDAPAuthoritative off
        AuthName "Subversion Repositories"
        ......
        ......
        require valid-user
</Location>

<Location "/svn">
        DAV svn
        SVNParentPath /var/lib/svn/projectB
        SVNListParentPath On
        AuthBasicProvider ldap
        AuthType Basic
        AuthzLDAPAuthoritative off
        AuthName "Subversion Repositories"
        ......
        ......
        require valid-user
</Location>

and so on....

Would be nice if someone already has a script (that excepts the name of the
repository) that does the job of entering the <Locaiton> block in the apache
configuration file.

Also why svn does not support nesting paths (logical empty folder) under
repository location. I am sure many people might have encountered simialar
issues especially if they have existing projects before they started using
subversion.

 Thanks for the help.
