SVNListParentPath used to list all repositories, but not too long ago
that was changed to only list repositories that the authenticated user
has access to.  (I can't find the commit that made the change, and
I don't recall whether the required access is "r access to the root of
that repository" or "r access to at least one path in that repository".)

I don't believe we made that configurable.

I'm not sure how to achieve what you want with mod_dav_svn 1.9.0.
Perhaps there's an httpd.conf trick you could use?  You'll want to have
the authz check return TRUE when the original request is for the
SVNListParentPath dir, and FALSE when the original request is attempting
to access the repository root or anything within the repository.
