Exactly what error messageare you getting?

In general, you need read access to the files and write access to the
directory.  Files are owned by the last user to update them, directories
are owned by the user who added them.  If you're on a SysV-like system
(most notably Linux), you may find it useful to set the SGID bit on all
the repository directories (chmod g+s) -- that will cause newly-created
directories to inherit their groupid from the parent directory instead
of using the groupid of the creator.
