As Andy already told you, this is not a TSVN issue, but a Subversion issue.

And why do you want "any other way" - before even trying the authorization
file?

As of 1.3.0, svnserve is able to provide path-based authorization. Put an
"authz-db" line into you svnserve.conf and let it point to your access
file:

[general]
password-db = userfile
realm = my realm
anon-access = none
auth-access = write
authz-db = authzfile

Then read in
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch06s04.html#svn-ch-6-sect-4.4.2

how to configure your access file properly. Start with the paragraph
beginning with "The syntax of the access file..." and read until
"...and that's pretty much all there is to it.".

After that, you will be able to apply read only and read/write access
to specific users.

Kind regards

Sven
