The average developer should use Subversion as soon as the developer is
mature enough to use it.

find some other philosphy of access control.

Create a directory owned by your svn account (let's call it /local/svn/.
Create a repository there. Run the svn server in the background (
svnserve -d -r /local/svn/ ). Verify that it's running (ps is nice
tool).

Go to the conf subdirectory (/local/svn/conf/ in this case). Update the
server.conf file to match your setup

        [general]
        anon-access = none
        auth-access = write
        password-db = passwd
        realm = yourhost

Add the user's account name and plain-text password to the passwd file

        [users]
        thor = aPassWord

Have your other account access the repository using svn://yourhost/,
using the account name and password you just created.
