Ah so. I had just assumed that doing setgid would put the same
permission in created files and subdirectories. In particular, it's
very useful to have g+w turned on.

So what's the best way to make sure that every new file and directory
in the repository has g+w? (Aside from telling everyone to set their
umask to 002, that is). Without that, any attempts by other users to
even checkout from (much less commit changes to) a new directory
created by someone else end in failure.
