Yup, agreed. This isn't an SVN thing. This is more "how do I make
freebsd somehow keep all files in a directory, recursively, owned by the
same user/group". The cron idea would work, potentially running every 5
minutes and just doing:
chown -R www:user /usr/local/www/webroot
but its a major hack. And it only allows people to check in once every 5

This is how I did things first =) But the webserver configuration files
and the code has SO MUCH hardcoded into it, the sites wouldn't work.
Trust me, I tried. That's why this is temporary. Because once I fix the
code, I'm setting up proper svn (trunk/stable/live) repos, multiple
sandboxes, etc. etc.
