perhaps the following pages from the manual would help

I think I have heard on this list (archived at ) that a LockDir writeable by everyone
who needed read access would allow read only access for everyone it was
configured writeable for, and setting the actual repository to only be
writeable by the smaller write permitted group would provide nice control.

I'd crawl over an acre of 'Visual This++' and 'Integrated Development
That' to get to gcc, Emacs, and gdb.  Thank you.
