The way I look at it this depends on the kind of files you are dealing with..

If they are text files which most of your code should be then concurrent editing is what you really want..

Because as the projects grow in number of people and geographies etc. you want to be able to work on the same stuff at the same time and then merge and checkin.


However, if we were to try and use the same concept for binary files for which merging does not necessarily work (the documents on your project) then one would prefer to be able to lock and then work on those documents.

What are the pros and cons of concurrent editing?. CVS supports and advocates concurrent editing, whereas configuration tools like VSS use the "locked" model of editing, to which the developers are very much used to. What are the benefits of concurrent editing ( using CVS ) and what problems could arise?
