If the auto-locking isn't mandatory, then just mount the repository
via WebDAV and give everyone a mapped drive. It's more or less meant
for what you're looking to do. As for updating a "server" somewhere,
just have a scheduled task update a working copy on that server (I
assume read-only for everyone else) on a regular basis. But I kind of
wonder whether you need to do that at all, when you could just point
people at the WebDAV-mounted drive or even an HTTP URL to browse the
contents realtime.

Really all of this is well outside the realm of TSVN, it's more a
Subversion server/config issue.
