I miss-spoke. The designer will make changes to one working copy only.
Those familiar with version control may use their own wc.

I see. The problem would be that copied files would loose their history,
correct? Still it might be reasonable to have the designer just modify,
add or delete files, (which is the bulk of what they do). Moves would
have to be done by someone in the know. Not ideal, but I guess there are
trade-offs when shooting for transparency. Sounds like autoversioning
with WebDAV is not yet without it's quirks either.

Thanks,
Andrew
