This is no supported use case. Depending on what problem you really
try to solve, as Mark already asked, you may think of creating new
repositories with some versions dumped from old ones. But this
wouldn't sound you really want version control either.

No, revisions are nothing where you can directly control access to.
One wouldn't want to, there are more or less a technical
implementation fact in this case, which the user shouldn't care about.
Subversion works on files and folders, this is the abstraction level
you have to think of and this is where Subversion gives you the
ability to limit access. You can configure to limit read and write
access to only authenticated users and even limit access to
directories and files to individual users and groups. In the latter
case the users and groups can only see the content they have access
to, which includes the revisions in which this content is changed. But
you can't say that users can only see version 1 to 104, not 105, but
106 to 110. This wouldn't be practical at all.


Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
