Are you saying you want to limit the ability to access certain files to only 1 user at a time? Or, are you saying you don't think more than one person should be able to edit a form at the same time?

If the former then you can use access permissions or write pre-commit scripts to prevent people from committing certain files. If the latter then I suggest you review the svn docs and learn about WHY it is the best practice to use the Copy-Modify-Merge (http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn-book.html#svn.basic.vsn-models.copy-merge) rather than Lock-Modify-Unlock (http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn-book.html#svn.basic.vsn-models.lock-unlock) for text files. Do you have a reason to say "I don't want to allow this" other than it is different than some old SCC software you used to use?

I think Stefan basically already wrote the script for you in a previous message in this thread.
