Group Permissions and Subversion question

How do I grant the 'svn' user access to run 'svn update' in the
'mysite' directory owned my the user 'mysite' ?

Currently, If I run 'svn update' as the user, 'svn', I get the error:
svn: Can't open file '.svn/lock': Permission denied

If I run 'svn update' as the user, 'root', all is well.
How do I give the user 'svn' the same privileges ?

I suspect this is why my post-commit script is not working as I am
logging in as user 'svn'...not 'root'
If I ran as root, the post-commit script works properly.

I tried the below to no avail:
/etc/group
mysite-devgrp:x:501:mysite-dev,svn

Then, I changed the group owner ship of mysite
chgrp mysite-devgrp mysite-dev

any help is appreciated as I am no unix guru ;)
