I assume you meant "svn ci file" and not "svn co file"

What meta-data are you trying to modify? Are you talking about
revision properties, like svn:author, svn:date, svn:log, etc.? If so,
that's fine, but you must not attempt to modify file contents or
versioned properties like svn:eol-style or svn:mime-type because the
working copy would then be out of sync with the repository and the wc
would most likely break in mysterious ways.

What does it mean when you say the committed file is locked by the
commit action? Where is it locked? Are you talking about a Subversion
lock, or something else?
