Hi dev

We are using locks, but it ist quite hard to notice if a file
is locked by another user. If I'm not mistaken, with TSVN, the
only way to see is a file is locked by another user is in the
repo browser and with check for modifications.

When there are many locks in the repository 'check for modification'
becomes hard to overview.

I often only notice that someone else has locked a file that I
modified when trying to commit the change.

The message from the server when the commit fails because of
a lock unluckily does not contain the user that has the file
locked (that's probably a restriction of subversion itself).

It then takes quite some steps to find out who has the file
locked and if there are other locked files in the local
It would be great if it were possible to get that information
from the commit dialog directly (e.g. with a 'check repository'
button like in the 'check for modifications' dialog).

BTW: Tortoise svn really makes working with subversion a
