apache user invoking svn

I'm sure this is a FAQ, but I couldn't find this question either in
the SVN FAQ. Basically, which user is invoking the commands on the
repository when you access it via Apache? My repository is owned by
root and writable by my developer's group. The http user is
definitely not in the developer's group, so I'm trying to figure out
how it's able to write to the repository directory.

Ultimately, what I'm trying to do is disallow individual users from
running svnserve via svn+ssh:// in favor of going through http://. I
think I could accomplish this by changing the ownership of the
repository directory to be writable by root only assuming that apache
was invoking these commands as the root user.

Otherwise, I'll probably have to maange a different authz-db file for
the svnserve.conf that disallows access for everyone in addition to
the one I actually use for apache.
