Why wouldn't you just check out the entire set of files? Work on the
files you need to work on, then commit them. Maybe for your next
"task" you'll need different files, and you'll already have them
since you checked out everything.

Note that in Subversion, "checking out" doesn't lock the files or
anything, like in some other version control systems. Any number of
people can check out any number of files from the repository and
commit them whenever they feel like it.

There is of course the ability to lock files in Subversion, and even
the ability to configure Subversion to require certain files to be
locked before they can be committed, but that is not the default
