Re: Exclusive Checkout/Edit for Binaries

Well, his original objection was about spending 4 hours working on
something only to find out it
was a waste of time upon commit when SVN complains about merging the
changes because
"the other guy" commited first.

The only thing a pre-commit trigger does is change the message, not the
fact he will still waste 4 hours
working on something he doesn't know 'joe' is also changing in HIS
personal working copy.

This calls for a trigger on checkout to look at a property and mark the
files read-only in your local working
copy based on a property as in your example #2.

Any undocumented functionality along these lines?
