Since you mentioned ClearCase, I think I finally understand your
misconception. In ClearCase "check out" means "get the latest version
and lock it". Subversion does not lock files, it uses a different
development cycle altogether, similar to (but not identical) to using
snapshot views and unreserved check-outs in ClearCase. In Subversion,
"check out" means "copy files from the server into a local directory".

Please read the Subversion Handbook.
