If you don't specify LockDir= in the config file, locks for a repository
directory go into the repository directory itself.  If all the users who
are allowed to read or write a directory have write permission on that
directory, then that works just fine.  If not, you have to set LockDir. 
Note that you only have to set LockDir for each *repository*, not each
top-level directory; most people just have one repository.
