Subversion repository permissions
There is just one thing that's painful about Subversion, but that's
rather painful too: permissions...
I have often thought I have got it right, but there is one thing that
remains: There seems to be some rotating of the log.* files, and if
that rotation is prompted by me using ssh, everything is fine. But if
it is prompted by the web server, it seems like the new file is not
created with 664 like it must be, but with 644, which will cause
problems later, requiring manual intervention and database recovery.
The Book, http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.0/ch06s05.html
suggests modifying the apachectl script, but I'm guessing that's not the
Debian Way. I need to tell Apache2 to use umask 002 when rotating these
logs somehow, but I'm out of ideas... Any?
