Getting permissions right on a web server

Sorry if this is a basic question, but I've searched through a fair amount of 
docs and haven't been able to find anything that answers my question.

We are using CVS to maintain the code for a web server. We use cvs update to 
get the code from the repository onto the web server.

The problem is our web server software needs write access to the folders and 
files, but when they are checked out/updated they are given different 
permissions (I guess from either the repository, or the original permissions of 
the files that were later checked in).

We need all files checked in to basically inherit the owner of the top-level 
directory. Is there any way to do this? Obviously we can just run "sudo chmod 
-R nobody *" but it'd be much nicer if it could be automatically done by CVS 

Any suggestions, or is this impossible?
