RTC support for Single Stream Development

Will RTC support single stream development in the future?

Parallel development is important to our organization for source code, but for document management it introduces a level of complexity our business users are not comfortable with. Specifically, with the lack of "checkout" and the complexity with merging disparate documents.

It sounds like you want an exclusive file checkout, where only one
person can edit a file at the same time. If RTC doesn't have the
feature you want now, I would suggest you open a bug describing the
feature you want and a use-case to help the developers find the best way
to fit it into the product. Feedback like this is exactly what we need
to build a product that fits peoples needs.

Support for reserving a file ("a reserved checkout") is planned for the
1.1 release (mid-2009).

Cheers,
Geoff
