Re: Automatic locking of files in repository

Right-click the file, TortoiseSVN->Properties, and add the following


(no need for a value, it will get a value of * automatically, just to signal
that the property is there)

Then commit that change, and ask everyone to update. This will make the file
readonly on everyones machine as they update, and they will be forced to
lock to make it writeable. This basically, for that file, mimicks how other
check in/out version control systems work.

Hope this helped.
