RE: 'checkout' state

If I understand you correctly, this would prevent a user from committing
while another user has the file 'out', but wouldn't let the user know that
another has the file before they started working on it. I.e., after the
fact. Is there a checkout event?

Cheers,

Well, if you don't mind lock/unlock events showing up as commits, you can
whip up a simple locking system using scripts.

Just set a property to your username to lock a file, and have a pre-commit
script that aborts commits that attempt to change a file with the lock
property set and not equal to the username of the user doing the commit.

Max.
