There are several ways. One is via the backend server (either Apache or
svnserve) and the other is a pre-commit hook that allows you to set the
"write" permissions.

Some people use a combination of the two because backend permissions are
harder to set than pre-commit hook permissions. However, the pre-commit hook
can only set write permissions and not read permissions.

Are you sure you don't want anyone but administrators working on
branches? It's strange enough to only allow administrators create all
tags, but in most shops, developers must be able to modify a branch.
That's what branches are for.

I can understand locking a branch, so only a few users can work on
that branch, or to lock a branch once no more work is allowed on that
branch, but locking developers out all the time doesn't make much
sense.
