It was bug in Subversion 1.7 that remove operation requires access to
repository root:
SVN-4219: svn delete fails with "403 Forbidden" if root is not readable [1]

This problem was fixed in Subversion 1.8. It's not server-side change.
It was client problem accessing repository root, while it's not
needed.
