More strict file permissions for the administrative ".svn" directories

Hi devs,

I've first discussed this at the "users" list and there was no big
interest but also no negative feedback there. Therefore I'm suggesting
this to you now:

Would you make the ".svn" directories not accessible by "others" (thus
being accessible only by the "owner" and "group") ?

You can review the full thread along with the security problem
description and a patch at the following address:

Let me know what you think. Thanks.

Best regards,
Ivan Zahariev
