All operations not requiring access to the repository will work. Subversion is
designed for being used with few access to the repository. You can edit and even
revert your changes. Creating patches also does not require access to
repository, so that should work just fine.

But _you_ have to merge his patches into your source again, since he can't
update his WC himself and therefore the patches will be against the version you
gave him and not the current HEAD.
