SVN supports locking also. It is feature when someone takes lock and noone else can change it. But what if a peopla has one day vacation ?
As described here, it is possible to takeover such a lock.
I am using tortoise svn, which does not enclosure svn command line client neccesary for that, sou I have to download proper svn client for windows:
1.5.4 (we are using now)
Cannot lock a file:
svn: warning: Path ‘/trunk/MyVB6Proj/MyVB6Proj.vbp’ is already locked b
y user ‘user_having_vacation@DOMAIN’ in filesystem ‘/svn/vb/db’
lock –force MyVB6Proj.vbp
‘MyVB6Proj.vbp’ locked by user ‘kunc@DOMAIN’.
And unlock my lock -this is operation I can do
