Subversion can handle this, no problem. If all your projects are in a
single repository, then you can use authz to limit users' access to
specific paths within the repository as you see fit. If each project
is its own repository, then that's even easier. authz used to be
available through the Apache2 server only, but as of Subversion 1.3.0
it is available in the svnserve server as well. You can read about
all of this in the Subversion book at http://svnbook.org .
