Locks on the repository - Further information

Hi,

The reason is following:

When I run the build, it takes around 30 minutes. In the build process I
first do the checkout of source code, and then perform the build operations
in sequence. My last build operation is a checkin in which I checkin some of
the files created by the build process.

To explain it further:
Before starting the build, subversion head number is 800.
Now I run the build and finally checkin few files and head number becomes
801. We consider 801 as the build release number.

But if somebody else comes in between and checks in his source code, he will
occupy 801 and I will get 802 (802 will be the release) and thus he will
corrupt the whole build process because 802 does not have the exact release
files.

So I want to solve this problem by locking the repository for the build
time. I can add repository lock/unlock steps in my build process.

With Regards,
Mayank

What do you want to accomplish by locking the repository? This might
influence the answer.

For instance, if I want to prevent access to the repository while I work on
our server, I can prevent xinetd from starting the Subversion server, which
locks out users. If you are trying to obtain a reliable backup, it might
not be necessary to lock anything at all.
