Questions from a SourceSafe escapee!!

Being a longtime VSS user I'm used to the file locking model rather
than the SVN checkin and merge model. It seems to me the check in
process is good only for *program source* files. I can see if several
programmers updated the same file, their individual edits could well
be merged to create a useful whole. But thats only source files - what
about graphics, or even websites like I use in VSS? Theres more work
in merging a complex html page >1 user has updated than just letting
each change it in turn a la VSS.

Please don't get me wrong, I am committed to moving to SVN but just
need to know how to manage this issue before I do.

The other concern (or perhaps this is a way round it?) is the idea of
moderation. I see from some open source mail lists I'm subscribed to
comments like "+1" for a feature. Does this mean a user has posted a
candidate update which won't automatically get committed until its
somehow authorised? How is this managed in SVN please?

Is there a way to force an SVN repository to use the file locking

Thanks, & thanks to for a great looking app!
