Shared working directory for deployment

We have working copy we use as a deployment area for our PHP Web
application. Generally we do development on a test server, then when
it is ready I cd to "/var/www/app_name" on the production server and
run "svn update" to switch to the new version. This has worked fine
for quite a while.

Recently another developer needed to update the working copy used for
deployment on the production server. The code files are all
group-writable by a group we are both in, so I didn't expect this to
be a problem. When he ran the update, though, he got all sorts of
permissions errors on the files in the .svn directory. I was able to
manually adjust the permissions so that the update worked for him, but
I suspect these permission changes won't apply to new directories
checked out, etc.

I was wondering if there was a supported way for multiple users in the
same Unix group to share a working copy? Or is this unsupported and
we should figure out some other way to manage our deployment

Thanks for any suggestions,
