Each person should have local working copies. The shared location
should not be touched directly by any user not logged on directly to the
machine with the files (so they all would have the same version of
TortioseSVN).

To make this work, you could set up an automated process that watches
for changes to the related subversion folder, and does an update on the
shared configuration folder. That way, commits from your local working
copy will cause changes to appear in the shared configuration folder,
without you ever opening that folder. (I haven't set this up before,
but from what I understand, it shouldn't be very difficult.)

I must admit I'm doing that, whether supposed to or not. We keep some
configuration files in svn, and to make changes you check in your change
and
then 'update' in the config directory. So the config directory is
itself a
working copy, which a handful of different users have access to. If ad
hoc
configuration changes need to be made directly, this can happen and then
they
can be checked in or reverted later.

Is there a recommended way to keep configuration files in svn and still
have the
convenience offered by TortoiseSVN of one-click update or diffing?
