If all these changes are being made in Subversion (all in the trunk,
or in different branches with changes merged between them), then
Fred's changes will not overwrite Bob's. Rather, Fred will get a
message that his files are out of date, and he must update his
working copy before he can commit. He updates, and receives Bob's
changes. Then he can commit his own, first resolving any conflicts,
if necessary.
