You can use svn+ssh to access a subversion repo, but svnserve still
has to be set up correctly; it looks like svn+ssh uses it underneath.
For multiple user access to a repo, this means permissions and groups
have to be set up carefully. The subversion documentation explains
how to do this.

Do NOT make it world writeable! Security needs to be taken seriously,
especially if you're giving others access to your system.
