Ok, some more testing and fiddling, first remove the lines I committed:

Then add this patch to reset a restrictive umask setting:

Now, step through the code in guarantee_greek_repository. We first create
a pristine repos. This gets its perms set very relaxed by the obscure
'chmod' call. This should be replaced by something more portable, but
it gives us this:

All seems fine. Now, the pristine repos gets copied (using shutil.copytree).
All permissions copy fine now, but we see a different problem:

$ ls -lR repositories/basic_tests-3/dav/
repositories/basic_tests-3/dav:
total 12
-rwxr-xr-x 1 striker striker 12288 Apr 15 13:59 activities

Ownership changed. And since the perms on activities stay the same,
my httpd user doesn't have write access to that file anymore.
And this causes tests to fail for obvious reasons.

I would love to help out here, but my py-fu would only get me a very
pale belt. Someone with a black belt that wasn't washed that many
times is very welcome to jump in ;)

PS. Would something like this work to recursively set perms?

def relax_perms(dir):
    "Recursively set the perms to be very relaxed."

    mode = os.stat(dir)[ST_MODE]
    os.chmod(dir, S_IMODE(mode) | 0022)

    for path in os.listdir(dir):
        pathname = '%s/%s' % (dir, path)
        mode = os.stat(pathname)[ST_MODE]
        if S_ISDIR(mode):
            # It's a directory, recurse into it
            relax_perms(pathname)
        elif S_ISREG(mode):
            # It's a file, set its perms
            os.chmod(pathname, S_IMODE(mode) | 0022)
