Yes, looks like that's it. You want "auth-access = write".

If you look into the svnbook, you can find the (not very intuitive)
definition of the auth-access configuration variable:
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn.serverconfig.svnserve.html#svn.serverconfig.svnserve.auth.general
 "Setting the value to none prohibits both reading and writing; read
 allows read-only access to the repository, and write allows complete
 read/write access to the repository"
