Being a newbie, I'm not sure that this isn't just coincedence. Plus, do
user & group memberships remain the same, even though you're checking
out files as just one user (root, presumbably)? You might want to do a
find [dirs & options] -ls > backuplist.txt and keep that under
subversion as well. If you ever had to restore from the svn repository,
you'd have something from which to re-assign ownership if it didn't do
what you expected.
