The advantage is that if an instance of cvs crashes, all its locks disappear automatically... it's also a lot faster, since it doesn't have to recurse through the filesystem to set locks (also, you can have multiple read locks on the same directory which is handy if there's a lot of load). To enable it just comment out any LockDir line in the CVSROOT/config and add LockServer=localhost. It's actually possible to write a program tha monitors changes to the repository in real time using this, but nobody's done it yet. Tony
