Notice of Someone Else's Lock - A Second Lock Overlay

From: Rob <lowtop.converse_at_gmail.com>

My group currently testing out the use of Tortoise SVN for managing various
binary files related to technical publishing. For one set of files we're using
locking, with the SVN:needs-lock property.

I've noticed that Tortoise does give me a lock overlay when I have control of
the file. However, if my co-worker has a lock on a file it isn't as easy to see
that I can't gain control of the file.

Currently, the process we're using is to chose "Check for Modifications" on the
TortoiseSVN context menu, then click the "Check Repository" button. This gives
a current list of the locks.

Unfortunatly, this doesn't seem to give the date of when the lock was obtained.

Is there a better way to see off hand that a file currently is locked? Ideally
there would be another overlay with say a lock with an x on it to indicate the
file is held by someone else.

Right now we're exploring creating a webpage that reaches out to SVN and
displays the current file list and any locks being held. It would be great if
Tortoise solved this problem for us though.

Thanks for your thoughts.
