RE: What would be the best way to create "working repositories"?

Completely understood and agreed.

As I said, I was setting the stage, not dictating the absolute.

I understood and agreed with Stephen's core points. I didn't find the
approach to communicating those points particular efficient.

My goal with the "over taxed" developers is explicitly to reduce that load.
I am not necessarily "over taxed" and if necessary I'm looking for ways that
I can take on as much of the burden of learning and possibly doing the
processes necessary and only have to push as little as possible of that
burden to the developers.

A 5-second Google search will inform you as to what git is.

Stephen makes a valid point, though - if you & your developers are so
"overtaxed" that proper source control is too much to handle (this
includes your developers not understanding Subversion beyond what
you've described), then you have worse problems than the one you've
asked for help with here.

In the end, I think you'll find you spend more time, money & effort
doing it wrong than you will in training & staffing appropriately to
do it right. Or, to paraphrase a sign seen around my office: If don't
have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it twice?
