Superficially, this looks like a problem with permissions on the
repository files and directories themselves (on the server's file
system, that is). But it's hard to say without more information; for

    * How do your users authenticate? Do you use svn+ssh:// or just
      svn:// to access the repository?
    * What's in your svnserve.conf file?
    * Do you use BDB or FSFS for the repository back-end?
