Communication when using subversion

Hi all,

I want to know how other developers communicate with each other when they
are using subversion. In particular, I'm curious how when working with
multiple projects and multiple developers, you communicate the fact that you
are working on a particular file, without locking in place.

Right now, our devs use VSS (yuck!), and when a person checks out a file
he/she gets a message that it is already checked-out by another user (would
they like to check out anyway?). This communicates to the developer that
someone else is working on the file, and that he/she needs to talk to the
other developer to ensure that they don't work on the same section of code
at the same time (avoiding clobbering each other).

How is this communicated in the subversion world, if locks are not
implemented? This is especially important for binary files that can't be

Thanks a lot,

Adam Lofstedt
