I am not sure if this is sufficient.

If 'nbecker' runs a subversion command which creates a new file under
the respository, then that new file will belong to 'nbecker' and be if
'nbecker's login group - which is probably not 'subversion' (probably
'nbecker' or 'user' or 'staff' or something similar.) Depending on
your umask - and what svn does with your umask, that file could then
not be modifiable by apache.

I leave it to someone more knowledgeable to say if an svn action can
generate a new file in the repos or not.

*If* it can happen, then you (i) also need to add 'setgid' on the
directories too or (ii) use a 'svn' binary which is group 'subversion'
and has setgid set.
