That’s the file that causes the problem when a different user tries to update a product. Does anyone knows how to solve it?

Hi Carlos,

do you really need one working copy to be shared alongside multiple
users? I understand there might be cases where this is reasonable, but
usually I'd suggest to have one WC per user. I take it that if you
change this, this would solve the problem you are facing, no?

On the other side, the SVN version you are using is quite ancient and no
longer supported. I'd suggest you to upgrade to SVN 1.9.5 (or at least
to 1.8) if possible. Note that even SVN 1.7.14 is years old and not the
latest build of the 1.7-branch (which would be 1.7.22). At least
consider upgrading to SVN 1.7.22 to determine whether the problem you
are facing was a bug in SVN which got already solved.

On the specific issue: I'm not getting completely what problem you are
facing. Are you expecting that SVN sets the group for .svn/wc.db
according to some group you set up by itself so it's readably/usable by
other users than the one who did the repository checkout?
