Sharing a working copy among different users

Hi there,

we think about the following setup for our web servers:

We installed a staging web server where everyone is supposed to edit and
maintain the web pages. The whole tree should be version controlled by
subversion. As everyone is allowed to change the web pages, the working
copy on this machine has to be shared amoung all staff members.

We encountered the problem that the meta data of the working copy is
read-only by the user that created the working copy first. The svn CLI
client then tries to change the meta data files to read/write state on
update, add etc.

Is there a pratical solution to get the working copy shared among our
users (all belong to the same Un*x group)? One working copy for each
staff member is not a practical solution because the web tree will be
about 2-4 GB in size.

Google doesn't find any valuable results regarding this topic. Also the
subversion book wasn't very useful on this issue.
