Apache setup, user access

From: Dave Pawson <dave.pawson_at_gmail.com>

I'm getting confused with <Limit ...> and <LimitExcept ...>

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/mod/core.html#limit

The purpose of the <Limit> directive is to restrict the effect of the
access controls to the nominated HTTP methods.

So if I have
<Limit POST PUT >
Require valid-user
</Limit>

Then the users in the passwd file will be able to PUT and POST

With LimitExcept, I'm less clear.
<LimitExcept> and </LimitExcept> are used to enclose a group of access
control directives which will then apply to any HTTP access method not
listed in the argument

So <LimitExept GET>
Require valid-user

will ... what? require a recognised user for everything except GET?

I'm trying to set up a Subversion repository which has
password protected read access, and no other access.

Any suggestions which method is appropriate please?

regards
