svnadmin create --user --group Attempt #3

From: John Peacock <jpeacock_at_rowman.com>

I have attached my latest attempt to automatically create repositories with
appropriate rights/ownership (under sufficiently *nix-like O/S's) to the issue here:


The log message is below (and also attached to the issue).

If this meets with more approval than the last attempt, I will try to get a test
written this weekend (though I will accept any help with Python greatfully!).

Implement two new options to the 'svnadmin create' command to explicitely
create a new repository with rights appropriate for either
1) exclusive access by a single user/process
2) shared access by all members of an existing system group
This is likely to only be relevant to Unix-like operating systems,
where chmod(), setgid(), and setuid() are meaningful.
* configure.in
     Add tests to check for existance of chmod, setgid, and setuid
* subversion/svnadmin/main.c
     (#include) - need svn_private_config.h in order to get autoconf #define's
     (enum),(options_table),(cmd_table): add owner_id, group_id to option tables
     (subcommand_create): Add logic to get system UID and GID and switch
     current process to those values before calling svn_repos_create()
     Create empty top level repository directory first and change ownership
* doc/book/book/ch05.xml
     (svn-ch-5-sect-2): Add paragraph and link to discussion of --owner and
     --group options in svn-ch-5-sect-5.
     (svn-ch-5-sect-5): Document the use of --owner and --group to create
     the repository with specific rights for limited repository access.
