Our users would like to be able to "check-in" and "check-out" documents stored on our TWiki pages as attachments. I cannot see a way to do this -- but I am thinking that others must have come up against this before? Is there a way to lock an attachment (for check-out) and unlock the attachment (when checking in)?

mmm, this would be a relativly simple Plugin to write, but I don't recal anyone releasing one that does it no. If you need help - see ConsultantsForHire and CodersForHire.

I am thinking about implementing this. My first attempt would be to disable the 'Upload File' button in the attach template if the attachment comment filed contains a specific string (e.g. "LOCKED"). *Question:*Does anyone know if there's already a function to pull the comment field out of the META:FILEATTACHMENT line in the topic ?
