What Permissions Are Needed For SVN Commit

From: <joseph.h.dayney_at_rrd.com>

Guys,

We are trying to DEBUG some permissions problems on a Sun Solaris UNIX
Server. The Powers that be are trying to implement a Tool from CA called
Access Control ... think its like ACL (Access Control Lists) and we are
having problems with Subversion commits.

The Subversion Administrative ID is " svnadm "

QUESTION:

When a User tries to commit a change to the Subversion Repository, is it
the Subversion Adminstrative ID that is actually try to execute the
commands ?

First we were getting permission errors on "mkdir " in the
./db/transaction/1818-1.txn

We thought it was that svnadm did NOT have permission to write to the
Directory ... so they changed the explicit Rule

Now it is failing on trying to do a chmod one level down (so I guess
mkdir is now working) ./db/transaction/1818-a.txn/rev

Is there any documentation showing what the process does, step by step on
commits or other writes so that we can see exactly what permissions are
required so that we can modify the permission rulesets in this Tool and
get beyond these errors ?

Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks !
