Probably your biggest problem here is the fact that ssl.conf isn't
really a separate configuration file that Apache uses for only https.
Rather, it gets wholly included into httpd.conf at startup. Look for a
line like "Include conf.d/*.conf" in httpd.conf; in effect, that line
gets replaced with the contents of all .conf files in the conf.d
directory. Some Linux distros do this to make managing httpd-specific
packages easier (they can just create the .conf files they need instead
of editing the monolithic httpd.conf), but I always find it annoying and
just make one httpd.conf with all my settings, and remove the "Include"

So, your general "Location /svn" block is getting wiped out by the more
specific "Location /svn/public" block for ALL requests, whether http or
https. I believe the way to achieve what you want is to create two
separate <VirtualHost> blocks. They can both use the same IP, but
different ports (80 and 443 for http and https, respectively).
