You can use the edit and commit patches available on SourceForge.  If you're
using cvs-1.11, I can send you the updated patches.

The patches'll allow users to supply options to edit and checkin that'll abort
the operation if other edits exist and a valid edit doesn't exist, respectively.
This has been discussed recently so if you search the archives, you'll get more

I have a groups of designers who are doing CAD work on binary graphical files.
Based on that we can really only have one person in each file making changes
at a time.  I am looking for some inputs on what how best to handle this.

I have gone though the manual and looked at reserved checkouts and watching.
However, it seams like if one person starts editing a file (either with locking
or watching) somone else can go and checkout that file and start to edit it as
well and is only told that the first person is in it when they go to do a
commit.  Am I missing something there?  Is there a way to tell the second
second person that the first person is working in the file before the second
person starts to edit it?

Or is there a better way to do what I want?  Maybe CVS isn't what I need for

Thanks for your help,
