To control access on directories in a repository, your options are:

  * use mod_authz_svn. it only understands read/write, not "create".

  * use a pre-commit hook script to control write access. There are at
least two prewritten scripts for this, commit-access-control.pl and
svnperms.py, both in /trunk/tools/hook-scripts:
