This is where you are causing your own problems. svnserve does not include
anything like SVNParentPath (like the Apache module does). Although that
wouldn't work either, since you are setting up two directory layers above the
actual repository (SVNGrandParentPath???).

What I'd recommend is that you have a single repository per company; this is
also good if the projects should ever need to share any portion of their code
(common libraries). The way you have organized it makes it much more difficult
to do that.

What you do from there is up to you; if you have completely internal
repositories (i.e. not on the public Internet), I would actually suggest setting
up independent svnserve instances for each company's repository:


which could still be the same box, but with different svnserve instances bound
to different IP addresses.

OR, you could actually use the protocol intended for this purpose and set up
Apache and use SVNParentPath (since this will work find with 'svn ls' as you
want to use it).
