See these sections of the book:

http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.7/svn.basic.version-control-basics.html#svn.basic.vsn-models
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.7/svn.advanced.locking.html

and particularly this section:

http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.7/svn.advanced.locking.html#svn.advanced.locking.lock-communication

Locking a file will not force an update to happen, but the lock itself is
not held on any specific revision either.
