Hello Dylan,

I suggest to give them a local copy of everything they need, so that
they can test and play as much as they like without affecting others.
Then, when convinced that their changes are good, they can check them in.

In addition an automatic build and test system like Hudson will notice
the changes in SVN, checkout, perform a build and run the tests.

There are several web application test frameworks/tools out there.
(Don't ask me which one *I* would suggest. ,-))

With best regards

Clemens Anhuth
