Subversion doesn't offer this. As of Subversion 1.4 there's a new
thing called svnsync, but that's only for making read-only copies of
a repository; you want both repositories to be writeable and svnsync
doesn't support that.

You may want to look into svk, which is based on Subversion and is
designed for distributed repositories. It may support the model
you're looking for.
