The svn:external property is irrelevant. To make 'calc' project
unreadable by user A, you would use some sort of authorization policy.
I can't tell you how to do it, because I don't know if you're using
svnserve or apache. Either way, authorization setup is documented in
chapter 6. Read through it.
