time without stepping on each other and never have to go through the
hoops that you are. If you want to make a quick change to a locked
file, check out an unreserved copy until the other guy checks in his
changes. If you have multiple people working on the same set of files
at the same time, each person should really be checking out each file
onto his private branch first. That way the /main/LATEST version is not
locked. As each person finishes his changes, he first checks his file
into his private branch, then merges any parallel changes from the main
branch onto his private branch, fixes anything that broke, and merges
the combined changes back to the main branch. ClearCase is designed for
just this type of development and used properly it works very well.

They're forcing us to transition to it at work, and initial trials are not
good. They basically said what you did.

view' requires a *lot* of network traffic, and when the network isn't super
reliable and *very* fast, it doesn't support very many users each with a
dynamic view, each doing compiles. At GoXXXXX, where I recently was a victim
of downsizing, we had 60 developers banging on our 100MBit network. We *used*
to complain that the CVS update was slow. Hah! The *regular build* with
Clearcase was three to four times slower, depending on network usage.
It's not a bad product, not at all -- just be careful how you use it!
Of course now, I would be happy to have a *job*, even one working with
