No, not possible.

New with Subversion 1.4 is the svnsync program, which lets you create
a read-only mirror of a repository. However that cannot be extended
to having multiple read-write repositories as you want.

You could consider SVK, which is based on Subversion and may do what
you want:


You could also look into WANdisco, which looks like it would almost
certainly do what you want, but it is a commercial product):


I have never used WANdisco and am not affiliated with them, I just
heard it mentioned on the list before.
