At the moment making a project "Public" while having Redmine manage the repository permission (svn in my case) gives anonymous read-only access to the repository. (I mean access from an svn client, not the "Repository" tab in the project's page)
It would be good to have an option to enable/diasble this permission with an "Open source" or "Anonymous access" checkbox in project options.

On my server I need 3 kinds of projects:
1. Private projects
2. Public open source projects
3. Public projects where I want every user to be able to create issues, post in forums, downloads files, etc... but can't access the source code.

At the moment only the firsts two scenarios are possible, the "Open source" option would enable the 3rd.

I wrote a plugin (https://github.com/amartel/redmine_bioproj) which allows project manager to assign a role to "anonymous" and "not member" special accounts. This way, you can define permissions for anonymous access on a per project basis.
I don't know if you can use it "as is" but it may be a start for a more generic plugin (mine is very focused on my own needs...)
