Please provide more information about what you are doing and what the
problem is. Do you mean that you have different users sharing one
working copy? Subversion is not designed with this in mind. If more
that one Subversion command is running on the same working copy at the
same time, they will fall over each other, because of the working copy
locks.

If you can ensure that only one person is actually working in the
working copy at a time, then I suppose it should work, as long as the
files are all still accessible to all users. You might have to have a
wrapper for svn that sets the umask appropriately. Not sure if this
would be enough, though.
