Remote repository permissions best practices

I’ve hacked my way through setting up a few CVS repositories in the past, but I’ve always struggled with getting the user/group ownership and file permissions correct.  I always seem to end up with a setup where the users can’t access the files that other users have submitted without going into the repository as root and chmod/chowning some of the files.  I am
normally setting the repositories up for remote access via ssh.

What is the right way to set up the repository, users/groups on the
repository or users/groups on the remote workstations as far as file
ownership and permissions go so that all users will be able to easily work on the files that each-other has submitted?  I’ve been through the FAQs and some of the documentation, and I’ve found some stuff on setting up remote ssh access to a repository, but nothing about how to setup file
permissions/ownership properly.
