If you "svn add" the new files and "svn del" the ones to delete, then
svn status on the root will list all those files for you. You can grep
the list to find what to include and send a copy of the list to let the
owner of the repository know what to delete (and to give an overview of
what you've changed).

As far as I know you won't need write access to the repository to do
this; you just won't be able to commit the changes.
