Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

You can do like this:                                                 
1. Add a watch on the file                                            
cvs watch on <filename>                                               
2. Now users can find out if someone has it already checkedout        
by using flag -c to edit                                              
cvs edit -c <filename>                                                
The edit will abort if someone else has made a cvs edit on the file.  
Unlike with cvs admin -l, with edit -c it is possible for a user to   
commit changes the file if he does not use cvs edit -c, so it is not  
really a reserved checkout like cvs admin -l, rather something
