Post commit hook on linux.

I realize this is probably more a linux thing than subversion, but I'm

I am running svnserve as a daemon on a linux computer. It is running as
user "svn". I accomplished this by making svn the owner of svnserve and
then doing a "chmod a+s svnserve" so when its executed, svn is who is
doing it.

Anyway, I have a post-commit hook which is suppose to update a special
workspace whenever someone commits something. This works; however, the
files that are updated have "root" as the owner instead of "svn". Since
svn is the user executing the process (I verified this with a ps
command), I would assume svn would be executing the post-commit hook and
therefore, any commands within the hook. I want svn to be the owner of
these files. Does anyone have any ideas?
