      Description

      It is not possible to have more than one person using the same checked
      out subversion directory tree even if the umask is set so all created
      files and directories are writable by the group and all group
      ownership and permissions are set appropriately.
      It appears that subversion attempts to set the permissions on the
      entries file even when it already has access to it.  Even if it
      doesn't have write access it should still be able to use and modify it
      since the .svn directory has group write access and it could rename
      and recreate the entries file.  There error I get when I, for example,
      try to "svn up" is:
      
      svn: Operation not permitted
      svn: svn_io_set_file_read_write: failed to set file '.svn/entries'
      read-write
      
      The only way to work around this is to have someone log in as root and
      change the owner to the user actually trying to run a subversion command.
      
      This is using version 0.28.2 (r6946)
