"One archive per person" is a good rule of thumb - and then you just
apply other people's changes to yours as necessary. Unlike some other
revision control systems, in arch this is not appreciably harder than
if everything were in the same archive.

You'll eventually understand why this is _preferable_ to working in
the same archive after you've used it for a while.
