Re: Branch Locking

A potential fix or way to workaround branch locking not being in CVS is
to create a script in commitinfo to check whether the file is going in
a specific branch.  I have not implemented this nor have I even toyed
commitinfo to see what sort of information is passed, but from all I
read it seems like a method for doing this.

I am not sure about discontinued branches though.  In a previous life I 
saw branch locking used to control who was allowed to checkin fixes to 
a release.  This way only approved fixes were allowed in for making a 
patch from the branch.  I know that Perforce has this sort of mechanism
but it is probably is because you finer control over users.  Not having
dug to deep into CVS in this area I can't say for sure.

Anybody please correct any of the statements above that are wrong.
