The svnserve configuration file does not have such a section. What it does
have is an example of what a separate users file should look like. IE, you
put the path to the password file in svnserve.conf, and put the actual user
information in that file.

In svnserve.conf

Then in password.txt in the same directory:

You're not the first to be confused by this ;-) Maybe one should look at the
wording in svnserve.conf?
