I'm something of a Subversion expert. (Years of professional work with it.)

There is *no way* to force people to check in their code. That's one issue.

The other is that you've discarded all the Subversion information when
you use "svn export". Instead, maintain a working copy that you update
or lock to a particular release, and do "rsync -avH --exclude=.svn
--delete working-dir/ targetdir/ --dry-run". You can also use this
command, without the "--dry-run" to actually publish the code from
your working copy, and even integrate this as a "post-commit" for a
working repository to be kept up-to-date at all times.

I actually know people who do this for some development code, so the
code publication is automatic when they submit code ot the trunk.
