Some good communications in the team is necessary:

While one developer adds and commits this folder, the other have
to move their copies of the folder out of the way. After updating
their working copies they have this folder under version control, too.
Now this versioned folder must be synchronized with their original
one (except for the .svn folder area) and committed.
