Hi Allan,

I want to prevent commits in /branches alone.
Apart from admin, no one shouldn't add any new folders under in
/branches folder.

Already We are using svnperm for access control. Can u guide me, how I
can do this?
If possible share your pre-commit script and guide me how i can modify
the script, based on my requirement.
