Package Indicator for Here Be Locks
« on: June 15, 2018, 08:49:28 pm »
Hi all,

User locks are indicated with blue exclamation marks for "locked by me" and red ones for "locked by someone else."
It would be useful to be able to see at any package whether something in it, but not the package itself, is locked by me or (less importantly) by someone else -- all the way up to the root node.

Maybe a smaller exclamation mark, maybe an italic one, maybe a paler one, maybe something else, but having some kind of indication would help a lot.

My theories are always correct, just apply them to the right reality.

Even with resetting the locking of items within the entire repository every night to ensure correct locking by package, EA occasionally ends up in an anomalous lock.  SO being able to see any lower level anomalies reflected up the tree would be useful.
