permissions problems are a catch 22 (newbie)

I have two repositories, one is laid out with libraries, the other
applications.

Libraries
        library1
        library2

Applications
        app1
        app2

I have apache running as user svn, group svn and both of my repositorys are
owned by svn:svn. The developers that access the repository are in group
svn.

In order for someone in that group (like myself) to import a project into
either of the two repositories the permissions on the repositories must be
changed to allow group write: chmod -R g+w libraries. When I do this I can
now import just fine but then subversion then reports that there has been
some sort of database corruption and I must run recover. I run recover with
no problems but this causes me to have to reset the repository permissions
back to svn:svn and then I also have to give the group write permissions
again. After I do this I eventually get the same error database corruption
error again and have to repeat the process.

Any help on how to correct this issue would be greatly appreciated.
