DSpace currently does not support version control (other than what you can achieve through the DC relation metadata). DSpace is really geared around holding *completed*, rarely changing works rather than in-progress works. In 1.3.x there is author/supervisor functionality so you might want to see if that provides some help, but it won't provide you with CVS-level document control.

Subject: [Dspace-general] Using DSPace to version documents - check in
- check out - locking
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1
I've kicked the tires on dspace and really like the tool.
The question that has been raised at my organization is:
Can dspace offer the check-out functionality seen in source control
A user if they wanted to work on the document - say a requirements
document - could checkout the document and it would not be available
for view by anybody else - they would then check it back in once their
work was complete.
I quickly scanned the archives of this mailing list and did not find
anything that readily addresses this point.
