Assuming: different user equals different computer.

You were confused because the FAQ states that you have to use SVN
clients with the same svn library version and you never had problems
with different people using different clients and client versions.

But that FAQ only applies for one user/computer. For example, if you
have TortoiseSVN 1.6.x installed, but also use Visual Studio with a
plugin (e.g., AnkhSVN or VisualSVN) that still uses svn 1.5.x, then that
won't work. Because TSVN (the newer client) updates the working copy to
the 1.6 format. But then the VS plugin which is still using svn 1.5.x
can't read the working copy anymore - an old client doesn't know about
the new format.

In your situation, you have different people use different svn clients
and versions. That is *not* a problem. Because they all use different
computers and have their own working copies. You don't access with your
client the working copy of another user/computer.

You found this mailing list. Everywhere this list is mentioned, the
users list is also mentioned and even first mentioned. And everywhere we
list our mailing lists, we also clearly state which lists you should use
depending on what questions you have.

That's what I'm talking about. And that's why the FAQ doesn't apply to you.
