I personally don't do that.

There is an unofficial branch of Subversion that does track
permissions. I don't know how well it works or how current it is, but
it's the owner-group-mode branch here:


You may prefer to not use Subversion directly, but instead use FSVS,
which is based on Subversion and which is designed to do what you're
trying to do.
