Subject Re: Feature Request: upon checkout create files as different group : svn:group property

Things like file ownership are for good reasons something your OS
and/or filesystem should handle, if there's something not working for
you you should change your setup. Samba provides inheritance of
ownership, permissions etc., just don't use fixed masks and groups,
and all modern filesystems provider inheritance for easier setup, too.

If you checkout using clients on your share your feature request
either can't work, as the client checking out can't do things Samba
can't do, or it'S simply unnecessary to let your svn client so
permission and ownership changes because Samba should already have
done those, if it was configured properly. It is even a security risk
if the client had to do something after the checkout because there's a
time window were other users could see or change or whatever data
until permissions got fixed by the client. You surely don't want that,

If you don't checkout using the share then just configure your
filesystem properly, e.g. use inheritance and groups. That's what they
are made for.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

Thorsten Schöning
