Possible problem with default permission of rep-cache.db file in 1.6.x

Hi all,

I have run into a problem with 'svnadmin create' that stems from the default permission bits of 'rep-cache.db', which is a new SQLite database file in 1.6.x repos. Even with umask 0, the protection of this file is set to 644 on repo creation, which prevents subsequent commits via an svnserve process which is running under a separate account than the one owning the repo (but shares the primary group with it).

Can this be considered as a bug? It can be worked around in our repo creation script, but I think this file should have basically similar permissions that other files in the db directory.

Best regards,
