Re: Locking to prevent changes to a branch?

The 'tags' tree is only static if you put permissions / access control
on that part of the tree to keep users from modifying it. According to
the docs, standard operating procedure says to make it static, but I
found out the hard way that if you don't set the right permissions, some
developer may accidentally check back into that tree.

Frank
