Sorry about this but I forgot to mention -

Do I need to install the patches "edit -c" and "checkin -c" before the edit
fail will work ?

I've tried the "cvs watch on" method but it still allows another user to do
a "cvs edit" ie it does not fail when I've tried to check it out as another
user. Any ideas ?

Let me make things more explicit.  With the patches and 'edit -c' and
-c' in ~/.cvsrc, the work flow would be:
1. Developer checks out module (all files are read only due to 'cvs watch
2. Developer does 'cvs edit'.  If someone else is already editting the file,
'cvs edit' fails and developer should contact other editors before
If it's deemed OK to proceed, developer does 'cvs edit -f'.
3. Everything else is as it was before.

Also, notification should be turned on in case the developer doesn't contact
other editors for any reason.
