This problem is often about different permissions for different SVN paths.

If you get

Commit failed (details follow): Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to MKACTIVITY
request for '/svn/reponame/your/path'

First, try to write to another SVN path on the server.
If that is also not possible, admin maybe needs to check IP based restrictions, or LDAP-based restrictions.

In the case you cant write to that specific Dir,

it is very likely your user has no write permission for the path /svn/your/path. I.e. path based permissions configuration issue.

Check:
1. Go to command line;
2. do svn ls svn://your.server/svn/reponame/your/path (the full URL of the path);
3. Enter credentials if needed. If you have no access, you user can’t even read the path
4. If you can list the path, user can read, but probably can’t write

Next thing is to contact the SVN Admin. And for Admin is to check the svnaccess privileges

(See here http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch06s04.html#svn-ch-6-sect-4.4.2)

The reason you cannot read the path may be that the svnaccess file which has restriction for your user or your group.

[reponame:/some/path]
SomeuserOrGroup = r

Admin could probably test that by commenting out the line

AuthzSVNAccessFile /path/to/access/file

in httpd.conf

hope, could help you. Have fun ;)
