That depends. Are you using svn://, svn+ssh://, http:// or file://
access? If it's svn:// or http://, then whatever ID svnserve or Apache
runs under is what needs the permissions. If it's file://, it's the
user ID which is actually doing the commit. I have no experience with
svn+ssh, so I'm not sure what's up there.

Your best option is to grant the ID under which the server process
runs fill control over the repository directory.

Like Simon said, you'll need to ask on the SVN users list.
