Ideas for tracking Authz changes in a repo

One thing I need to be able to do in the near term is track when authz
settings change for a user (or groups).

It'd be great if Svn had the authz file (optionally) under source control.
I'd be happy with

1) a robot user performs a *copy* of the file from its canonical location
and automatic commit of the authz file into <root>/.authz. And perhaps that
would have permissions such that ordinary users cannot see it.

2) the configuration of the authz side of Svn (optionally) can be
*canonically* located at <root>/.authz (same notes as to hidden, itself)

3) something else - advice welcome!

Re #1, I could engineer a Jenkins job to perform the commits, but the
config changing isn't in the classic trigger system.

Regards,
