If you set watchers on, then when users checkout files, they will be
marked as read-only. They then shoud use cvs edit to mark them as
read-write. When committing files back in they will be marked as

The system is not fool proof and users can 'cheat'. But if they use cvs
edit, then a system of user watchers can be setup where users will be
notified via email that a file is being edited.

I have found this to be the best compromise.
