I tend to set the sticky bit on the top level directory in the
repository. This ensures that new files and directories are created
with the same group as the directory they are created in. Works for me
with people using both local, pserver with userids and pserver with a
fixed user identity (no dedicated account on server. 

If some one knows why this is a bad idea let me know!
