Re: Documentation about the 'Lock' feature

Good suggestion.

In my defense (well not really), since the decription of this project
is "same as and better than CVS" and I can make CVS do exactly what I
have decribed and need, I figured it would be easy or easier than CVS
to get Subversion to do the same tasks...

My mistake.

Thanks for your help.
