I did read that but in my tests, when server is 1.6, whatever version of
client (1.6, 1.7, 1.8, 1.9), cannot remove.

When server is 1.8, behaviour change depending on client version so it
might be related to this issue (even if in all cases, the user has access
to the root).

But according to provided authz file 'alice' has read access to

OK thanks for the info, do you know if it's documented / specified
somewhere ?
I tried to get this info from
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.serverconfig.pathbasedauthz.html
but those rules are not described.
