You need the meta-data branch for that.

See http://svn.collab.net/viewcvs/svn/branches/meta-data-versioning/ for
the branch; but beware, this is just the *modification* needed.
They should be applied to a current version of subversion.

So I'd suggest you get a current patch by something like
        svn diff -r 13256:HEAD https://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/branches/meta-data-versioning/owner-group-mode > /tmp/meta-data.patch
and use this patch to update your subversion source.

Or, if you're compiling a checkout of subversion, you can use "svn merge".

Regards,

Phil
