Here is a sample of a configuration that works for me. I added the
<Limit...> to show you as a reference.

    <Location /code>
      DAV svn
      SVNParentPath /code_repos
      SVNIndexXSLT /svnindex.xsl
      AuthType Basic
      AuthName "Code Repository"

    # AuthUserFile /code_repos/users.list
      AuthPAM_Enabled on
      require valid-user
      AuthzSVNAccessFile /code_repos/access.list
      <Limit DELETE>
        require user username1 username2

This will require that there be a valid user to do anything in the
repository. However, the only people allowed to delete anything will be
username1 and username2. The read and write access to the repository is
controlled within the SVN (mod_authz_svn) module itself, and I use the
AuthzSVNAccessFile to set those permissions.
