Making the corresponding subdirectory of the repository read-only using
the operating system's settings (chmod or acls on GNU/Linux, for
example) should be sufficient to give read-only access to a project.

You will then continue to be able to checkout or export, but not commit
to that project.  Write access to LockDir will still be required
