You can't change ownership on many systems without being root. The
owner/groups comes from the uid/gid under which you create (check out)
the file.

That being said I record user/group/mode info in the svn properties
for the file and then use a script (run as root) to extract that info
and apply it to the files. Alterntively, you could do your checkouts
as apache when you are in the apache tree.
