Subject [jira] [Commented] (SVN-4857) Add PC Name to lock
Date Fri, 08 May 2020 15:24:00 GMT


Nathan Hartman commented on SVN-4857:


This is the issue tracker for the core Subversion libraries and tools (Apache Subversion).

If you use the 'svn' command line client, you can achieve what you want by using the message
argument to 'svn lock' as follows:

{code:bash}$ svn lock FileName.txt -m "Locking this file from my downstairs computer"{code}


{code:bash}$ svn lock FileName.txt --message "Locking this file from my upstairs computer"{code}

That message will be shown in addition to other information when you type 'svn info FileName.txt'.

If you are using a GUI client (e.g., TortoiseSVN or others), that software is maintained by
another project and you should contact that project for feature requests such as this one.

> Add check box in configuration that appends the PC Name along with current user to the
locked by field. I log into multiple PC's using the same user name, and modify a common repo
on all of them. At the end of the day it gets confusing which PC's had specific locks. All
I know is that they are all locked by my user name.
> Thank you for your time.
