Re: Make branch read only

You could also use mod_authz_svn if you are using Apache to serve up your repository. It allows you to set per-directory read/write access and is fairly easy to set up. My Apache config file looks something like this:

<Location /svn>
    DAV svn
    SVNParentPath /srv/svn
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "Subversion"
    AuthUserFile /etc/https/svn.passwd
    AuthzSVNAccessFile /etc/https/svn.authz
    Require valid-user
</Location>

My svn.authz looks something like this:

[groups]
administrators = account1
developers = account1,account2,account3\

[/]
* = r
@administrators = rw

[/trunk]
@administrators = rw
@developers = rw

[/branches]
@administrators = rw
@developers = rw

[/tags]
* = r
@administrators = rw

In this case administrators have read/write access to the whole repository while developers have read/write to everything except the tags directory which is read-only.

Chapter 6 of the SVN book covers mod_authz_svn. Hope this helps.
