You can setup the samba share to use a specific user for file ownership on
the server side (same goes for group ownership).

You would create a "department" user on the server,
chown the share to the department user.

then in the share conf add:

"force user = department"

to the share conf.

Now all clients can connect with their normal user name,
but once they are connected, all users are the same user on the server
side....

Maybe this is a pointer in the right direction.

(but doing it the subversion way is still better, but you allready know that
:-)

The downside is that you lose the information who changed what file,
because all files are owned by the same owner.
