You could try one of the following things:

- write "umask 002" in the users' .bashrc and/or .profile
- have PAM set the umask
- move "svn" to "svn.real" and put a wrapper in its place that looks like


umask 002
/path/to/svn.real "$@"

The last one is probably the best, as having all user generated file with a
umask of 002 is probably not what you want. When you use the wrapper only svn
access has that umask.
