Sure, that would be something like this:






# Update working copy
$SVN update --non-interactive $WC

# Fix ownership and permissions of newly added files
for i in `$SVNLOOK changed -r $REV $REPO | $SED -n 's%^A %%p'`; do
        chown someuser:somegroup $WC/$i
        chmod 644 $WC/$i


Note this may blow up if any items have spaces in their names.

Also note this is calling chown and chmod on directories as well as
files. If you want to handle directories and files differently, you
can look at the last character on the line of output from svnlook --
if it's a slash, the item is a directory, otherwise it isn't.

And note that this assumes that your working copy is checked out from
the root of the repository, which is probably not the case if you're
using tags and branches, or if you have multiple projects in one
repository. You'll have to further filter the output of svnlook to
include just those paths that are within the part that's been checked
