You can control read access via the .htaccess files in Apache. This is
not the preferred method since these files apply to the entire
subtree. See http://httpd.apache.org/docs/howto/htaccess.html for more
details.

If you don't care about read access, but only want to control write
access, use the Perl script that comes with Subversion in a pre-commit
hook script.
