As I said, with Subversion 1.2.x, authz is only available if you're
using the Apache server. As of Subversion 1.3, authz will also be
available for svnserve, but Subversion 1.3 has not been released yet.
If you need this feature immediately and are willing to use pre-
release software, you can use the latest Subversion 1.3 release
candidate, 1.3.0-rc7 as of this writing:

Subversion does not know anything about "projects"; it only knows
about directories. Per-directory access control is what authz is all
about, so look for documentation about authz. As far as I know, it's
currently only documented for use with Apache, but I expect it'll be
similar for svnserve:
