For svn, there is currently no fine-grained access control. There was a Google SoC project that was supposed to implement this, but I don't know the status of it.

As far as sub-dir protection goes though, even for http auth, I don't believe you can protect a subdir you've given access to, but I'll see about that.

Oops, I was wrong. You CAN do it with http auth. See:

1. Svn+ssh
2. Multiple people (between 5 to 10 people)
