Right. The executable bit is the one exception. If a file that you
add to Subversion has the executable bit when you add it, Subversion
adds the svn:executable property to the file. If you check out a file
that has the svn:executable property, Subversion sets the filesystem
executable bit on it. If you have an existing file in the repository
to which you would like to add the executable bit, add the
svn:executable property (with any value; Subversion will normalize
the value to "*").

The owner-group-mode branch is almost 2 years out-of-date and
probably forgettable at this point:
