Devs take rotations to make those release builds (basically running ant, and notifying testers that a new build is ready). We each make the build with our own user account, so the working copy is effectively "shared" (though not used concurrently).

It's probably not that unusual to have a specialized build setup and a
separate working copy for it. The only issues you should have with this
should involve the local file permissions as you switch users and
perhaps the cached subversion credentials.
