Yes. That is what I mean. If there is no locking there is nothing to stop
two programers from changing the same file at the same time. This is not-OK
for binary-based work like filemaker. There is no way to merge the changes.

I would conclude that SVN is not a good chioce for a binary-only project
like ours. Though for the other reasons you gave, it would be nice.

thanks,

Terry
