Subversion repository permissions

Hi all!

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?
