The first one opening a page for editing will lock that page. Anyone 
trying to edit that same page will see who keeps the page locked for 
editing, and how long that lock will last.

I agree that "talk" pages should be used for discussing the content of the 
associated page. The mailing list is meant for discussing the 
Slackware Documentation Project as a whole.

At some point in the near future, when I activate the publish module, I 
will also stop posting to and reading the LQ thread. I want our 
discussions to concentrate in that mailing list. To many people 
posting in LQ have opinions but do not put their money where their mouth
