Problems occurred running accepting change sets

 One of my co-workers wants a copy of a change set that is sitting in my repository workspace.  When she tries to accept it, she gets an error with the title in the summary above and:

Reason:
Active change sets cannot be accepted.  Please complete the change sets or contact their owner.

What is this telling me?  I thought you could accept change sets from another person's repository workspace.

Thanks!

Chris

A "mutable" (non-completed) change set can only be accepted into a single workspace at a time.   So in order for you to accept the change set into your workspace, you will need the owner to perform the "complete" action on that change set.

 Thank you, Geoffrey.  Am I correct that if I complete this change set, I can't change it -- or if I do, does it go back to a "mutable" state?

That is correct, once it is completed, you cannot change it.   Ideally, you would be able to reopen the change set if it hasn't yet been recorded in a baseline or delivered to a stream.  You could submit an enhancement request for this functionality.   Note that you can apply the change set as a "patch" to your workspace, if you want to look at it without forcing the owner to close it (but that is rather clumsy).
