I hate to answer my own question, but I found this interesting thread: serverfault.com/questions/11521/svnssh-security

comment How to secure svn+ssh checkout users?
I'm afraid this isn't really a solution to my problem, as I don't want to use the svnserve binary.

comment Cross-group file permissions in Linux
This is working great! Surprising how setuid/setgid is something entirely different on directories than on executables. Thanks!

comment Cross-group file permissions in Linux
I'm afraid this is not working, because the new ACL doesn't seem to apply to new files in the repo. For example, the db/revs/0/50 file is created when revision 50 is committed by Alice. Bob can't access this file as it does not have the ACL rights for Bob. Somehow the ACL needs to be made sticky or something?

comment What to use for software-based shared file storage?
Excuse my ignorance, but I'm afraid I don't fully understand this. In a 2-server set-up I would have 2 NFS-servers both mounting the NFS-share? Or just 1 NFS-server and 2 mounting the NFS-share? What if 1 server goes down, I need to set-up the NFS-server on the other (remaining) server?

Hi, thank you for your answer. Concerning your comment "If you have only two backend servers, your data is updated quite often": would this stay valid with more servers? So can we safely add 2 more servers (creating a cluster of 4)?

Thank you for your answer. Do I understand correctly that I make one server the 'NFS host', and that the other server(s) read from that NFS share? So each server has the DRBD block-device, each formatted with the EXT4 filesystem and one server shares a NFS volume, and the other server(s) connect to this volume?
