svn lock changes file rights

did not find anything about it yet.



I use svn 1.2.3 in a very special situation and therefore need some kind of
Lock-Modify-Unlock Solution.


In detail I have a repository (per https and Basic http auth via an
htpasswd- file) and a !single! checkout of it, everybody is working on. This
is, because the files are mainly html- cms- template files which need to
previewed quite a lot while customizing, and one could not afford to work on
local checkout, since previewing of it is only possible on the server.


Now I thought 'svn lock' is exactly what I need, so I can make sure no two
people are going to work on the same file at the same time, but even give
the later one a comment who is working on what in the file right now.


So far so good. But now comes my problem: The files all need to be owned by
a user, which is mainly the cms- user. So I gave everyone of my customizers
group rights. That looks something like that:


-rw-rw-r-- 1 cms-user customizer-group 30 2006-08-01 17:32 bla.tpl


So when I edit the file: user-I@server:/checkout/# vi
<mailto:user-I@server:/checkout/vi%20bla.tpl> bla.tpl

an later commit the file, everything stays fine.


But to take advantage of the locking-feature I change the rights: chmod

-r--r--r-- 1 cms-user customizer-group 30 2006-08-01 17:32 bla.tpl


Now when I use "user-I@server:/checkout/# <mailto:user-I@server:/checkout/#
lock bla.tpl> lock bla.tpl" the file changes it's owner to me, looking
like that

-rw-r--r-- 1 user-I user-I 30 2006-08-01 17:32 bla.tpl

So that I would need to change the owner afterwards manually, which I don't
have the rights!



I hope somebody can help me, despite my bad grammar.
