authz is the per-directory access control which is available since
Subversion 1.3.0 in svnserve. Before 1.3.0 it was only available in
the Subversion Apache module. The feature, including how to set it up
with Apache (which you should skip over if you're using svnserve) and
the file format for authorization information (which you should read
in either case), is described here:
