Dear David,
That would help- indeed its not a good solution for me because its just difficult to setup :P I am not getting used to it... what I am used to are visual source safe, PVCS...
Also another problem is so far I cannot find a good SCC provider for SVN as well

        I'm not sure how forcing locks on every file will improve your
        situation. But, as everyone else mentioned, you can put the property
        "svn:needs-lock" on every file.
        
        I'm not sure why you say autoprops is not a good solution since it
        will automatically add this property to every file you create.
        
        Maybe you're talking about an enforcement mechanism to ensure that
        this property is set? After all, a user can remove the property, or if
        the user doesn't have their conf file setup correctly, the
        svn:needs-lock won't be set.
        
        I have a hook that will check properties and prevent commits if the
        properties on that file aren't setup correctly. If someone removes
        svn:needs-lock or creates a file without this property, they won't be
        able to commit any changes unless they attach svn:needs-lock back on
        the file.
        
        Will this help?
