RE: Documentation about the 'Lock' feature

If some of your developers are "less trustworthy" than others, maybe you
want to give them their own branch to play with. That way any
"unauthorized changes" stay on the branch and are not merged upwards.

Otherwise there should be a log of the changes made to a file. If someone
changed a file property, you should be able to figure out who it was and
when it was changed.

yes I want to prevent them from breaking and stealing locks yes. There
is a way of doing that?

Email? cool... I have not seen that feature... I can get an email when
a file is changed? or commited?

Yes well I have found if you provide the developpers an inch they will
take a mile and the higher ups are developpers too and they do not
give them any sh#t when they screw up, it is usally blamed on me for
giving them too much access...
