SVNAuthz File Problem

I have some trouble configuring correctly the authentification mechanism.

I am using apache2 with mod_dav_svn and mod_dav_svn_auth. It works
really well. I have read the book and I read this mailling list for a
long time now but I can't figure out how does the auth module works

So here is a set of question to try to understand how it works :

I am using a big repository hosting multiple project (no SVNParentPath).
all subdir of the root of the repository is a project
   - project1
   - project2
   - project3
   - ...

Supposing 2 users user1 and user2 and an administrator named admin I
want to :
 - be sure that none of my users can create a new project
 - user1 has full access to project 1
 - user2 has full access to project 2
 - admin has full access to all project

I have read that rights are inherited from parents does it mean that
a user need to have write access at the top level to be able to write in
a subdir ?
Is it possible for a user to
have following rights :
root (r)
  - project1(rw)
In which order does the policies are applied from reading the
configuration. I have put the [/] at the bottom of my file should it be
the first entry ?
