No. Copying and seeing files can't be prevented.

You'd need to encrypt your data at some level to prevent root
from seeing it. Don't think that's feasible for an svn repo.
The SVN server would need access to the data, and so root will
have access, too.

If you want to protect your data, take it home to your own server
instead of storing it in an untrusted environment.
