"403 forbidden" is not telling somebody that they only have read access to a repository (or part of a repository). It's telling them that a web server somewhere doesn't like them. "What a web server? I thought I was using subversion" says the user.

It is telling them that the administrator of the repository configured it so the
login they are using does not have permission to commit there. What more do you
need to know? If it is accidental you have to contact the administrator to
correct it. If it is intentional, you have to contact the administrator to get
your login authorized. If you are the administrator you know what you have to do.
