Re: which version control supports file locking and who has it locked

You're right! ClearCase with dynamic views would provide that data (files
could not be modified unless checked out and the checkouts left markers in
the database). You could even see "who" from other replicas (assuming
proper synchronization).

Agreed: you could not see what changes they were making unless you had
access to their view.

Thank you.
