Yes, this is possible.

Because I do no local operations on my repositories, I just set the
owner of all repos to wwwrun:www (which is my Apache user in SuSE).

Perhaps you can try to disable the firewall or try to set
apacheuser:usergroup as fileowners if you have to do local operations.
Then a 770 would be enough, I think.
