Nothing - it is how we work as well. We have two servers (one production and
one test) both updated by post-commit hooks, so that the developers don't need
to do anything special (this is a good thing). I even wrote a Perl module to do
this easier:


so internally here, the test server is synced on every commit and the production
server is synced when a specifically named tag is created.

For your external developers (I think "outhouse" is not the right word ;-), you
can either have your test sites available on a public IP address (as you do now)
or use SSH tunneling to bring the external users into a private site. You can
even have a third, staging server, which is externally accessible by the clients
for final approval

It works just fine (on the Subversion side), modulo the requirement to have
multiple working copies checked out on multiple machines.

A good rule of thumb is that all related, or likely to be "borrowed", code
should be in one repository. If your client files are 100% independent, it is
better to use separate repositories; for example, if a client leaves, you can
backup their repository to DVD and delete it from your server completely.
