Yes, all of the "same caveats" still apply. The short list (these
are explained in more detail at your URL) of best practises.

  - wrapping the svn and svnserve binaries with a script that
    sets the umask to 002
  - all files and directories under the repository are in the
    subversion group with permissions ug+rw
  - all directories under the repository have the setgid bit;
    find repository -type d -exec chmod g+s {} \;
  - all users requiring write access belong to the subversion
    group
  - don't backup the repository; dump it somewhere and backup
    the dump instead

Missing any of those steps results in pain, no matter whether I'm
using BDB or FSFS.
