I do not know my setup to be correct.

I created a wrapper svnserve script:

umask 002
/opt/svn/bin/svnserve.svn $*

For the repository permissions and ownership, I executed an
approximation of the following:

umask 007
svnadmin create ${repo}
chown -R svn:${group} ${repo}
chmod -R g-w $repo/conf $repo/hooks

Basically, this reserves the ability to write to conf and hooks to the
single 'svn' user, which is our admin user.

Thank you,

cd $repo
