setting up creat-only for tags

sorry for asking this silly question, but I cannot find any helpful
example for limiting the access to my /tag tree
to create + r/o.
From the mailing list:

but you can limit permission to write
new revisions through various means. The easiest is probably
see the book here:


I followed the link - found this as example:

<Location /svn>
  DAV svn
  SVNParentPath /usr/local/svn
  # how to authenticate a user
  AuthType Basic
  AuthName "Subversion repository"
  AuthUserFile /path/to/users/file

  # For any operations other than these, require an authenticated user.
    Require valid-user

But this much like a read-only access. What I have to add to get a create
+ read-only access.

Another method would be using the access files to set the policies. I
found some description and examples in the Subversion documentation, but
Im not sure if this is complete. Where can I get a *complete* syntax
description of the access files?

Would it make sense to have something like 'c' (create) for the policies
inside the access files? In my opinion this would be easier to configure,
than going for the WebDAV/DeltaV functions. Im not too familiar with this
- to be honest: not at all - and it is not clear how the mapping to
r/w/(c) could be.

Could anybody enlighten me? Thanks a lot.
