I am new to version control and have spent the last few days reading up
on Subversion. I would like to hear others opinions on how they think I
should set up my repository/repositories. Currently I work in a team of
three developers although this is likely to expand in the future. We
have three servers running different verisons of Coldfusion (6, 7 and 8)
and IIS. I'm thinking there are 3 possible ways I could set up.

1) Have each developer work on their local machine and commit their code
to a central repository on one of the dev servers, the drawbacks I can
see to this are having to have each local machine running all 3 versions
of Coldfusion which is possible but might prove impractical in the long
run especially as new versions are released, also these machine aren't
backed up which might create problems if someone forgets to commit their
code and for some reason the machine goes belly-up.

2) Set up a repository on each of the dev servers and give each
developer their own area on the server to work in, these servers are
backed up so no worries about losing code. Is it practical to maintain
three different repositories? What would be the drawbacks to this set up?

3) Set up one repository on one of the dev servers and as with option
two give each developer an area on each server to work in and commit
their code changes back to one repository. Can you see any drawbacks or
impractibilities to using this method?

I would be grateful for any thoughts or advice you have about these
options. I want to make sure I set this up right to begin with to avoid
problems in the future.
