The collaborative work is in theory possible with JabRef but I often end up with conflicts (users that forget to review and accept changes, database a bit long to save and possibility of data loss if 2 save requests are sent approximately at the same time).
Therefore, I am considering the possibility to add an optionnal lock mechanism.
The mechanism would be:
- if 'lock file to read only when opened' option is checked then
Would it make sense to you?
If yes, I would consider working on it and submitting the patch to you. But I would like to make sure that this is an optional behavior that would be acceptable to you.
