I did chmod -R g+w the whole repository to begin with. I just did notice
that some of the __DB files were owned by an individual user. Not sure if
that's umask related. The first time I ran "svnadmin recover" I did that
as root, which of course broke some permissions, but I had those fixed
right away. I just added a wrapper to svn and svnadmin to see how that
holds up.
