Tony, In the recent versions there is a new option for edit command: -x Exclusive edit (Stop other users editing this file) That doesn't seem right. Is there a way to verride it? commit -f doesn't work and it probably should. It's totally against the main principle of CVS (namely concurency) and it will cause troubles given that with CVS people don't have any indication that the files are exclusively edited by someone else up until the last moment when it's too late. E.g. someone will do edit -x, forget about it and go on for holidays. Others are stuck. Or someone will lock the whole folder with all the files, even if working on a couple of files and it takes time to track that down and beg the guy to un-edit it. Or the "manager" is not comfortable with concurent development model and will force everyone to use that. The list can go on and on. Best Regards, Jerzy
