Setting a web page at the repositories' parent URL

I have a question concerning the "mod_dav_svn" module that Apache use for
accessing the repositories.

According to the documentation, if I set a configuration like this one :

<Location /svn>
    DAV svn
    SVNParentPath /var/lib/svn

... I define a parent directory under which I can put all of my

So I can access them like this :


But if I just type :

I get a page like this one:

You don't have permission to access /svn/ on this server.

Apache/2.2.9 (Debian) DAV/2 SVN/1.6.12 PHP/5.2.13 mod_perl/2.0.4
Perl/v5.10.0 Server at www.myserver.com Port 80

This is quite ugly, and I saw several SVN servers exhibiting this behavior.

Is there a way to put a web page on this location?

(for example a blank page, or a page with links to the only repositories
that I want to be publicly accessible for reading)

Best regards,
