The files in your SVN repository /svn/repos/L3 (and the directory L3) must
be readable and writable by the user Apache runs as.

Even though you start Apache as root, the worker tasks will change their
user id to the user and group specified by the User and Group directives
in your apache config file.

You should make your repository files owned by that user/group. If for
example, the user is svn and the group is devel, the command:

  chown -R svn /svn/repos/L3
  chgrp -R devel /svn/repos/L3

would do the trick. On Linux, you can combine them typically to:

  chown -R svn.devel /svn/repos/L3

will do it as well.
