I've got exactly the same problem here:

znek@creutzfeld:(~/Projects/GNUstep/modules/core/base)$ svn commit -F svn-commit.tmp ChangeLog Headers/Foundation/NSStream.h
svn: E000013: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: E000013: Can't create directory '/var/svn/gnustep/db/transactions/37489-1.txn': Permission denied

Original code was checked out successfully using svn+ssh access:
svn co gnustep

When trying to check into GNUstep repository using the following command:
svn ci ChangeLog Source/GSXibLoader.m

I get the following error:
svn: Can't create directory '/var/svn/gnustep/db/transactions/35158-1.txn': Permission denied

After working the issue with the GNUstep admin it was suggested I follow up with support. Currently requires me to send patch updates to admin for any contributions until this is resolved.

Thanks in advance,
