As I mentioned I am new to Linux so will see what docs I can find for

That could be done, and fairly easily, with Samba's "vfs" module
support. I've been thinking about this on and off for more than a year.

The simplest implementation would just share a Subversion working copy,
hiding the .svn directories and adding appropriate hooks to commit
changes. You'd probably only want to track metadata operations (create,
delete, rename) and open/close on files -- you'd commit on a close
following an open-for-write, maybe checking if any changes were actually
