This list seems to be addressing issues at a very detailed technical level,
far beyond my expertise.

I searched the archive but could not find any reference to file 'shares'.
We use this quite a lot in Visual SourceSafe to manage our documentation
files.  Sharing allows a file which participates in several documentation
deliverables to be added to different projects.  Whenever it is checked out
in one project it is automatically locked against checking out in any of
the other projects in which it participates.

A trivial example might be a copyright  and licence notice which is
identical for all publications but need to be changed to reflect changing
legislation.  The legal notices file participates in all user guide,
installation guide, etc. deliverables projects, can be checked out in any
one for modification, and ensures that legal notices continue to reflect
changes in all projects.

Can file sharing be implemented in WebDAV, please?
