How to fix the user and group permission of .svn file

Dear list,

here is a typical problem and I am trying to fix it. Hope someone kindly
enlighten me.

In a remote server both svn and samba is running. users are accessing
svn through https:// and they have mapped the remote samba share as a
map drive in their window pc. Hence they can checkout from that remote
samba shares ( using tortoise svn client ). Now in samba it is forced to
get 775 permission and the groups are also fixed by "chmod g+s "
fine... There is no problem to checkout at the very first time. .svn is
created with proper group name and with 775 permission.

-rwxrwsr-x 1 apache bergundtal 2473 Jan 12 11:11 all-wcprops
-rwxrwsr-x 1 apache bergundtal 2652 Jan 12 11:35 entries
-rwxrwsr-x 1 apache bergundtal 2 Jan 12 11:11 format
drwxrwsr-x 2 apache bergundtal 1024 Jan 12 11:41 _notes
drwxrwsr-x 3 apache bergundtal 1024 Jan 12 11:41 prop-base
drwxrwsr-x 2 apache bergundtal 1024 Jan 12 11:11 props
drwxrwsr-x 3 apache bergundtal 1024 Jan 12 11:41 text-base
drwxrwsr-x 5 apache bergundtal 1024 Jan 15 14:52 tmp

But after the first CO it tries to change the owner permission of
all-wcprops, entries,format and evne make the ownership as readable
only. How can I stop this ? I am looking for an way so that the
owner:group combination will be always fixed and it will have 775
permission. Could any one kindly show me the way ? below is the apache
configuration for svn

<Location /repos>
DAV svn
AuthType Basic
      AuthName "Authorization Realm"
      AuthUserFile /home/SVN/PASSWD
      Require valid-user

SVNParentPath /home/SVN
#SVNParentPath /var/www/svn
# # Limit write permission to list of valid users.
# # Require SSL connection for password protection.
      AuthType Basic
      AuthName "Authorization Realm"
      AuthUserFile /home/SVN/PASSWD
      Require valid-user
