Brian, thanks yes it is confusing.
first confusion: repository permissions I take this to only refer to the
actual Subversion repository and NOT the contents of the .svn dir in the
working copy. correct?

We would want to have the repository readable by the Apache user so that
viewing diff can be carried out with a web interface like viewvc.

What I meant about changing the URL was that after a working copy is
created using some URL, this seems to be recorded in a file
.svn/entries
So that one does not need to keep entering the full URL.

Is it safe to change this file manually?
