That would be something like:

$ chgrp -R svn /path/to/repo
$ find /path/to/repo -type d -exec chmod 2770 {} \;
$ find /path/to/repo -type f -exec chmod 0660 {} \;

Users will also need a umask of 0002 for this to work as expected.

If many repositories will exist on the server, it would be better to
define more fine-grained groups for each project domain, and then
adjust the group ownership of the repositories accordingly.
