Another person with permission problems, only locally though

2nd try, I guess I had the wrong from: address before

OK, I just got subversion all built and running last night. I mainly

did exactly what was mentioned in
http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/apache/2002/12/19/svn2.html except using
the latest versions and also added --with-ssl when I built
subversion, here's the versions:

subversion 0.35.1
apache 2.0.48
BerkeleyDB 4.2.52.NC

Everything built and installed fine, got apache all configured and
started and I can do checkouts via http://localhost:81/svn/testrepo
just fine, haven't checked commits yet, though. My problem is when I
try to do it locally via something like
file:///home/svn/repositories/testrepo/ it gives me permission
denied errors. so I go and chmod g+w the whole testrepo dir and it
works (I added my user to the svn group, which is the group owner of
it). but I don't want to keep chmoding every new repository I make.
I know this is all superficial since I can just use the http method
just fine, and in fact most of my work will be done from another
computer, so I would be using file:/// anyway. But I still wanted to
get it to work, even for just checkouts. And I can't think of a way
that will automatically create it with g+w on new files that are
created. If it's too much trouble, I won't bother with it and just
use http (well https eventually) for everything. It's more of a "for
future reference" if I ever create it somewhere that I can't use an
apache server or anything.
