+1 - up your alley.

furthermore I offer Martin to help review in detail

Please - I was beginning to think I may have taken on a bit much. ;) Let's
look at this together.

Other comments from me at the moment: I think

Ah - could you take the lead on talking to Kapil about this? I'm guessing
you're the one who understands the locking work the best at this point.

CMFEditions, Iterate and your locking work from Norway would be things to be
incredibly proud of in 3.0. I'm quite sick of making the "Plone kinda
supports versioning/locking/staging, well, er..." argument. :)

In a similar vein, I think it'd be useful if we had one person who took a
look at the versioning, locking, and iterate bundles, since they are likely
to require some co-ordination.

Last but not least, I agree with what has been said about Bling/KSS/AZAX,

I'll make this a priority. I doubt I can get anything together before the
weekend, but expect a detailed email from me then. :)
