[Subclipse-users] Feature request: prompt for lock on *opening* file with svn:needs-lock

From: Jon Skeet <Jon.Skeet_at_clearswift.com>

We have some Word files under Subversion which we'd like people to lock
before editing.
We've applied the svn:needs-lock property.

Unfortunately, Eclipse doesn't get told when a user tries to edit a Word
file. (Interestingly, opening it within Eclipse "inline" it seems to
make it writable immediately, which doesn't help - using "System editor"
it launches Word separately and keeps it read-only.)

So, the feature request is that *optionally*, when you even *open* a
file with svn:needs-lock (but where the lock hasn't been acquired)
Subclipse asks you whether or not to acquire the lock. I don't know
whether it's feasible - I don't know whether Eclipse has a hook which
lets you know when you open a file. If possible though, it would be nice
:)

(It's not an issue for files edited within Eclipse's own editors,
because Subclipse prompts at the ideal time in that situation.)
