    initial v1  
    11Last week I sent the following question to support@mountainduck.io:
    22
    3 ''We are in the process of rolling out WebDAV support for developers using our CMS.  As I explored the available options for WebDAV clients on both Windows and MacOS platforms, I stumbled across CyberDuck and your new Mountain Duck product.  For collaborative development, however, the ability to lock files while you are editing them is critical, and virtually no WebDAV clients currently support locking that we've been able to find.  We're especially looking for appropriate tools for our Mac users, since we haven't found any tools they can use to lock and unlock files on a WebDAV share while they are working on them.  Are there any plans to support locking files on a WebDAV share in either your CyberDuck or Mountain Duck products?''

    7 ''Thanks for your interest in Mountain Duck! We do not currently support resource locking as there were implementation issues in Cyberduck with potential dangling locks after editing a file. In Mountain Duck this could be implemented properly I suppose. Please reopen and comment ticket [1] to allow us track the issue.''

    99So as requested I am now doing so.  One simple option is to simply provide toolbar or menu functions to lock and unlock a file manually as a separate process from editing a file.  While it is not as automated as automatically locking and unlocking a file while editing it, it at least exposes the functionality in a way that can be used.
