required group permissions

Is it a bug or a feature that subversion requires that the user ownership be
present on the *local* copy of the repository?

I have a checkout where I have full write permissions as a member of a group,
but of which I don't have ownership. Currently, svn won't allow me to
perform an update nor commit, for the same reason: 'operation not permitted.'

Permissions and evidence of my group membership as as follows:

// logged in as kibab
kibab@myhost Stylesheets $ svn update
svn: Can't set file '.svn/entries' read-write: Operation not permitted
kibab@myhost Stylesheets $ ls -ald .svn
drwxrwxr-x 7 root web_users 328 Apr 20 09:55 .svn
kibab@myhost Stylesheets $ ls -ald .svn/*
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root web_users 118 Apr 2 11:43 .svn/README.txt
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root web_users 93 Apr 7 16:39 .svn/dir-wcprops
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root web_users 0 Apr 2 11:43 .svn/empty-file
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root web_users 4533 Apr 8 10:02 .svn/entries
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root web_users 2 Apr 2 11:43 .svn/format
drwxrwxr-x 2 root web_users 720 Apr 13 11:56 .svn/prop-base
drwxrwxr-x 2 root web_users 720 Apr 13 11:56 .svn/props
drwxrwxr-x 2 root web_users 720 Apr 9 16:39 .svn/text-base
drwxrwxr-x 6 root web_users 184 Apr 20 09:46 .svn/tmp
drwxrwxr-x 2 root web_users 720 Apr 9 16:39 .svn/wcprops
kibab@myhost Stylesheets $ groups kibab
[snip] web_users cvs_users cms_admins kibab

As you can see, I am a member of the web_users group and the web_users group
has full write permissions on both directories and files.

Thanks for the help.
