Check out
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn-book.html#svn.developer.webdav.
I set up a separate repository for our sales people to place their
RFP's. So they can work on them, save them, share them, etc. And if
something got changed that shouldn't, we can go in and look at the logs
to find out who did what when (through Tortoise for us tech geeks).
