Re: Svn transaction failure due to wrong permissions on creation.

A number of you have asked if I ever resolved the subversion
permission problem as I reported it here:

After trying several versions of Apache and Subversion (from both RPM
and source), I resorted to a complete OS upgrade. Our admin upgraded
from RHEL3 to RHEL4, updated the server's bios, and I reinstalled
subversion and Apache from stock RHEL4 RPMS. Now everything works

After many many many months of trying to figure out what was wrong,
this shot in the dark appears to have fixed things. Our subversion
repository has been stable since we did this.

I wish I could have identified the problem. I wasn't the only person
with the problem ( several people contacted me with the exact same
problem wondering if I had fixed it ). The problem did seem specific
to a version of Linux and one guy was using Solaris, I believe.

For those people that e-mailed me, I apologize for the delay in
response. Hopefully you found acceptable solutions to your problem as
well. For those on the mailing lists that tried to help me, thank you
very much. For those that still have this problem, and the time to
pursue it, I would encourage you to work with Apache and subversion
developers to attempt to identify the root of this problem. I
realize, now, that it is probably neither an Apache or subversion bug.

Thank you,
