If you want files created under that directory to belong to group
"webdev" you should set permissions to 2775 (first "2" is for "g+s" or
setgid bit) on the directories under /var/www/test.example.com/data.
This will force new files and directories to have the same group as
the parent directory, and new subdirectories to have the setgid bit as
well (so that files under those will have the same group too).

Does the "apache" user belong to the "webdev" group? What does "id
apache" return? Did you restart Apache after adding the user to the
"webdev" group?
