RE: Checkout every file as read-only; make some of them editable with a explicit command.

I'm sorry, I believe you are correct. I usually associate read-only
mode with exclusive locks. I guess they can be two different features.
:-)

Google didn't find anything about this in the subversion book
(http://svnbook.red-bean.com/). Maybe someone else has a more definite
answer for you?

Hi,

        I'm looking at the roadmap right now. Are you referring to the
"optional
locking (reserved checkouts)" feature? I might be wrong, but I believe
that
that is a different thing: it is a feature that allows for a file to be
edited only in one working copy at a time. That's not what I'm looking
for.

        Perhaps you are referring to a different 1.2 feature? Which one
would that
be?

Thanks,
Esteban.
