SVN Newbie: Problems setting up svnserve (Connection is read only)

Hi everyone,

I apologize if this is a newbie question. I tried to search the ML
archives, but didn't find anything about the issue.

I try to setup svnserve on my system. I've created a repository living
in /usr/share/svn_repos/test. The svnserve.conf inside the test
directory looks like this:

password-db = userfile
realm = example realm

anon-access = none
auth-access = write

The userfile is this:

dersebi = a
maluku = a

I then start svnserve using the command

svnserve -d -r /usr/share/svn_repos

I can checkout fine, but after trying to commit any changes, the commit
fails saying that the connection is read-only. Now from my
understanding, the anonymous checkout shouldn't be possible, and svn
should ask for authentication. Why doesn't it?

Even setting anon-access to write doesn't allow committing the working copy.

Thanks in advance for any advice,
