Use modules2 (or modules) to share modules/files. IMHO, modules2 is easier to use than modules.

The lockserver does not handle linked files in any special way... as far as it is concerned the linked files are separate artifacts. > Can risks be reduced, if the link is protected (no commit possible) via a > lock (-k+x) or marked as static (-k+s)? Possibly... you'd have to manually lock/unlock the files affected... probably easier to use modules/modules2. David.
