Getting a ssh+svn repository to work is tricky, due to certificates. It
requires getting a valid certificate saved for the web server's user.

Do you have any read-only http repository? If so, you should set that as the
Path for the repository and then set the ssh+svn repository as the Mirror
Path. Review Board will then be able to access the http repository without
dealing with certificates, and yet will still validate with your ssh+svn
repository when uploading diffs.
