Or: where are your repositories on disk?

"Some" means multiple repositories. The above is one example. There are
multiple Apache locations each pointing at its own repository.

Foolishly I missed to replace "Location /wheregroup" with "Location
/myproject" while anonymizing the example. The original SVNPath to the
repo is "/data/svn/wheregroup", sorry for the confusion.

With the above Location the URL would be http://mysvnserver/wheregroup.
