Read chapters 5 and 6 in the svnbook. In particular, read about
'pre-commit hooks' in chapter 5 and 'mod_authz_svn' in chapter 6. If
you're using svnserve as your server, then your only choice is to use a
pre-commit hook to restrict write access to branches and tags --
read-access isn't controllable using hooks. But if you're using apache
as your server, then mod_authz_svn can control both read and write
access on directories.

But the real reason I replied to this easy question (rather than let
someone else do it): is NASA really using subversion? What for?? :-)
