CVS is designed for parallel development. Is there some overriding reason to
lock files? You'll have to explain what you're trying to accomplish. 

In my experience people who want to lock files are not used to parallel
development and need to change the way they look at their processes.

This may or may not help:

That paper is targeted for a  CVS server running some sort of Un*x. I've not
tried this with an NT CVS server, so YMMV. 

Another option is to use pserver remotely and to use ssh to securely tunnel
to the server. 

> 3. CVS use a kind of its own mail service 

If it's a Unix server, it just uses the standard mail (which works fine). I
have no idea about NTCVS. 


It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless
minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds.
