Hi Bo, > cvs update -k+x file to enforce exclusive reservation That's probably the one you want. That command just adds the exclusive bit to them, so if they are already set up with deltas then it'll just add it. You'll probably also want to update the cvswrappers on the server to reflect the change, so new files are added with the exclusive option as well. > What I can't quite grasp is the difference between these two > options....

Files with the "x" option are checked out read only, and made rw by the edit command.
