This is working perfectly. Thank you.

I fixed a few permissions. I suspect that the latest SVN version now creates additional files during the first commit, which is done by the system so without proper group membership.

Can you let me know if this works better now?

Each time I commit changes to project bank-el, I get the following error:
Transmitting file data .svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: attempt to write a readonly database

Actually the commit works but I have to run 'svn update' to complete the transaction. I've tried on two different machines (arch linux, svn version 1.7.4 and debian svn version 1.6.12). So it doesn't seem to come from the client but from the server.

Repository fetched with svn+ssh. Checkout works.
