Since you used "LimitExcept" in httpd.conf, it is not placing any limits
on the methods you listed (GET PROPFIND OPTIONS REPORT). Since read
access requires only these methods, "Requre valid-user" is not taking
affect for read access. If this is not what you want, remove the
"LimitExcept" tags and just use "Require valid-user" by itself.

SVN will try to use anonymous access if it can, then ask for
authorization info otherwise. Since you aren't requiring read operations
to be a valid-user, you are never being prompted for that info.

That's because you aren't giving any configuration for global read
access. Maybe you wanted to say "* = rw" instead?
