Sorry Sean - I wasn't clear enough.

I think the new subversion server should be set up at home base in such
a way that it is externally accessible to you while away. At the same
time it would accessible to those who stay behind.

I skipped the (necessary) step of moving the repository to the new
'external' machine. I also skipped mentioning my assumption that the
current subversion server is on a protected network which cannot be made
accessible from outside.

On that note, it doesn't even have to be at home base. You could set it
up anywhere with a static IP address and decent DSL connection. If you
are only versioning text files it can be an indecent DSL :)
