Subversion on Debian

Hi there!

I need some help with Subversion on a Debian box.

The (current) Debian/testing installs the subversion repository using a
subversion group, so all files in the BerkelyDB are owned by

The problem I have, is that I get "permission denied" from, e.g.,
ViewCVS which has an integrated subversion access.

What do I have to do to get things right with permissions to make
Subversion run on the Debian box as intended? The Subversion book talks
about creating a dedicated user which should run (and have rights on)
nothing but subversion. What is the Debian aproach to this?

I need to understand this before I go my own way and do something
wrong... :-(

Best regards,
