Just my two cents...
How secure is "secure"? Is it to stop a source code leak like Half-Life 2, where millions of dollars in intellectual property is paraded on the Internet and they are publicly humiliated? Or are they designing software for guided missiles?
I think they're going to have to communicate more often than once a week. Set up a trusted staff member to act as courier, who drives back and forth every day. If you're really paranoid, ensure that the CD is encrypted by a method unknown to the courier, by a second staff member who is that staff member least friendly with the courier.

Les, I'm looking right at his original post. > We have two sites wanting to use Subversion that are performing parallel development of the same software. Due to security restrictions, the two sites are unable to communicate electronically; all data transfers must be via media (CD-ROM/DVD). Site A is the main site and is responsible for overall configuration control. If they're security sensitive, sending the working copies back and forth becomes a security nightmare. It also becomes a major performance bottleneck for the remote site, who may really not appreciate being treated as second class citizens.
