Re: Locks with write-through-proxying

Thank you Clint,

But may be you can help me to know what I must understand in :
"If the lock database is not propogated, users will not be able to
accurately determine whether a lock is held but locking will still work."
So does locking mecanism work or not ? Because I don't care about knowing
who has a lock on one file or another with svnstatus, I just want that when
someone has locked a file then anybody who try to lock again this file wille
face to a refusal.

And anyway, I don't understand how it's possible, in my local case, that a
user locks a file on the slave server and only on the slave server whereas
all the write-oriented activities are supposed to be done on the master

I would be very grateful to anyone for any additional explication.
