Restrict Directory Creation

From: Joe H-Grosse <jhg_at_isnordic.dk>

We are using subversion for versioning and storing documents.


What I want to know is if it is possible to allow users to create, delete
and update files everywhere in the repository - but restrict the creation of
additional directories to an authorised sub-set of users.


The reason for this is that the directories' nomenclature are an important
part of the indexing and categorising scheme we use and also help users
navigate around the repository to retrieve documents, as such, any additions
to the directory infrastructure need to be reviewed to ensure that they are
necessary - otherwise it becomes increasingly hard to find things - and it
is hard to get users to remember to adhere to and use an organisation-wide
nomenclature for directories - so strange names start to appear that don't
necessarily give as good guide as they should as to what their contents will


Thanks in advance.
