Don't use the sources there -- they are old (cvs-1.10.8?).

Yeah, that's the one.

You need only apply the patches you want.  The
"enh-multiple_edits+reservations.diff" patch combines the
"enh-multiple_edits.diff" and the "enh-reservations.diff" patches.  Order
doesn't matter but you may get conflicts with some combinations of patches.

0.0. editor0 and editor1 should be the same user to test the multiple edits
0.1. editor0 and editor1 check out a module.
1.0. editor0 does "cvs edit -c file".  It should succeed.
1.1. editor0 does "cvs editors".  This should have the new output if using the
"multiple-edits" patch.
1.2. editor1 does "cvs edit -c file".  It should fail.
1.3. editor1 does "cvs edit -c -f file".  It should succeed.
1.4. editor1 does "cvs editors".  This should have the new output if using the
"multiple-edits" patch.  It should also show both edits on the file.
1.5. editor1 does "cvs unedit file".
1.6. editor1 modifies the file.
1.7. editor1 does "cvs ci -c file".  This should fail.

I think this covers everything.  If someone else thinks of other cases, please
let us know.
