Want to actually clarify my mail,
When i meant checked out files , I mean  any files in the database,( not admin files ).

Hi all,

Would like to know if we need to edit any admin file in CVSROOT
to enable locking of files in cvs.

I know cvs  is mainly for concurrent usage/editing  of files,

but it would be gratefull if someone gives me some tips.

Note: I have created  a group cvsadmin  and given the group full rights to the CVSROOT admin files.
Actually i can lock the  checked out files, but only if i belong to the cvsadmin group.

As a normal user , even if  he has full rights to the files checked out , he cannot lock the files.

Gets an error saying : only cvsadmin group can lock files.

Please advise.

Thanks & Regards
