Umask with rc_local

Hi all,

I'm using subversion for a university project, and for the moment i can
only use local file:// access, as I'm not the Web administrator.

We are two people working on this project, with two different logins, and
we both have a umask set to 022 ( which is the standard value : rw-r-r ).
The problem is that when we commit svn does'nt change this umask when
dealing with files in the repository, particulary database access, and if
it leads to the creation of a new log file or db file, the privileges on
the file will be rw-r-r, and the second user won't be able to access the

When looking at cvs, it changes in some way the umask as after a commit
newly created file have ownership rw-rw-r which is the correct one for
everyone in the group to acces the repository.

Is this a known bug and is there a workaround, I'm using subversion v 0.15
( and didn't see this cubg correction in the changelog for 0.16).

Thanks all,

I'll take a look at the source code to see if it is something I can
