Notify Team members when a file is locked for editing

My requirement is to keep the team members informed when file(s) are locked for editing.
I know that RTC captures this as feeds and logs them at Team Central. But, i only need the lock pertaining information captured for one Team Area.
Can i configure a feed to get this done? We're at RTC 2.0. Please let me know if there are other ways to achieve this.

Thanks !

As of RTC 6.0.5, there is no way out of the box to provide notification when locks are aquired/removed for a given Project or Team Area.

Also, the 'lock' change events are not present when showing all change events for a particular Project or Team Area, they are however present when looking at the change events for a particular stream. Ex: in Eclipse RTC, right-click on a Stream in the Team Artifacts view and select the "Show" --> "Events" context menu action. The lock events will appear when checking the "Source Control Streams" filter.

See this wiki for a list of SCM change events, and which 'context' each change event might appear in:

The above link got me close to listing feeds related to locks alone. How do i enhance this further to list only feeds pertaining to a specific Team Area?

Any ideas !!
