RE: Best way to do 'svn chown' ?

Mike,

subversion does not care about file permissions at all.

While checking out / exporting repository contents it's totally up to
you whom the resulting file system content will belong to, i. e., when
user "donald" belonging to group "duck" "svn export"s something, the
exported directories/files will have owner/group donald/duck.

HTH,

Thomas
