Not quite. CVS is designed to make concurrent editing feasable. That doesn't
mean you need to do it, and if you do it, you don't necessarily have  to do it
on the same branch.

There are two ways to deal with your problem.  The complex one is to make
everybody work on their own branch.  This will have "overhead" in your process.
More simply, and probably what you want is the command "cvs admin -l".  It will
lock a revision until you checkin or somebody else uses "cvs admin -u". -CTH
