Hi Ram,

I followed a setup explained at http://www.linuxjournal.com/node/7655/print
In particular

/etc/apache2/conf.d/subversion.conf contains

<IfModule mod_dav_svn.c>
Include /srv/svn/conf/mod_dav_svn.conf

mod_dav_svn.-conf contains

Include /srv/svn/conf/public_default_policy.conf
Include /srv/svn/conf/private_default_policy.conf
Include /srv/svn/conf/policies/public/*
Include /srv/svn/conf/policies/private/*

/srv/svn/conf/public_default_policy.conf contains

<Location /public>
        Dav svn
        SVNParentPath /srv/svn/repos/public
            Order deny,allow
            Deny from all
            Allow from
            Satisfy all

/srv/svn/conf/policies/public/crm contains

<Location /public/crm>
                AuthType Basic
                AuthName "Public Subversion repository for project crm"
                AuthUserFile /srv/svn/conf/svnpasswd
                AuthGroupFile /srv/svn/conf/svngroups
                Require group public_crm

I think this is a bit complex, but the article was the only one i found
with a thorough explanation of why things are set up in that way.

Thank you for help
