user and group permissions

        Hi, I am trying to configure my system to use local repository, users
and groups, then I followed the instructions of "Supporting Multiple
Repository Access Methods - Chapter 6. Server Configuration"
(http://svnbook.red-bean.com/svnbook/ch06s05.html), after I tried


> - create a svn group and make sure your user belong to it,
> - give the repository ownership to www (or whatever user Apache is
> running),
> - chgrp the repository to the svn group,
> - alter the repository permissions in order give write permission and
> directory access to the svn group for the whole repository,
> - add the group ID permission to the directories,
> - make sure every user accessing the repository have a umask of 00x.

        But users are not capable to have 'write' access to repository, read
the configurations below:

# repository directory
[claudio@demolidor svn_repos]$ pwd

# as you can see, I did a chmod g+s -R .
[claudio@demolidor svn_repos]$ l
total 36
drwxrwsr-x 7 svn svn 4096 Mar 22 01:28 ./

# I want to be capable to write here.
[claudio@demolidor svn_repos]$ touch a
touch: cannot touch `a': Permission denied

# the user 'claudio' belongs to 'svn' group
[claudio@demolidor svn_repos]$ cat /etc/group|grep claudio
