RE: svn????????

Hmmm, we were planning to do this in the following scenario:
- during normal development, everyone has his own local WC
- for building, we use a fixed build machine (*nix machine) with a "shared" WC (we take rotations to perform the build)

This "build WC" isn't changed a lot, just as part of our build process (update, create new branch, adjust some externals, change versioninfo file and commit, ...). Everyone does this under his own user account (so we have some trace of who made the build etc), and it's never done concurrently (there is lockfile to make sure of this). We prefer sharing the WC to save time and diskspace on our build machine. To avoid file permission issues, we make sure the entire WC is "group-owned" by the developers' group, and make sure everything is group-writable (may require some umasking).

I guess this sort of WC-sharing should be fine, shouldn't it?

I agree though that for "normal use" (i.e. development, making lots of changes concurrently, ...) WC sharing is not a good idea.

I am not sure exactly what the issue is. However, users should never
share the same working copy of Subversion. That can cause all sorts of
issues since user "A" may not have permission to change and modify
files that were created by user "B". This includes the invisible
".svn" directories and the files they contain which Subversion uses to
track where the checkout took place, and what was changed.

Why are these users sharing a working copy?
