Limiting access to only commit messages

I asked this question on the users list but didn't get any replies.

I need to secure an Apache hosted Subversion repository so that it can be
accessed off-site by a JIRA (bug tracking) server.

What I need to know is if there are a set of Apache access methods (like
OPTIONS, PROPFIND, etc.) that can be used to allow a user to be limited to
getting only log commit messages, without allowing access to the actual
contents of the repository.

The Blanket Access Control section of the Subversion book
(http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.serverconfig.httpd.html#svn.serv
erconfig.httpd.authz.blanket) hints that this might be possible, but doesn't
describe what the connection is between Apache access methods and Subversion
actions.

Thanks in advance,
David Resnick
