This view allows you to manage WebDAV WriteLocks. WebDAV, as an extension to the HTTP Protocol, allows the users to create Write Locks as a way of trying to avoid the "lost updates problem". However, sometimes WriteLocks may become abandoned. This may be due to users forgetting to unlock their resources, software failures such as crashes, etc. In many cases, locks might just time out before this becomes a problem. In cases where it's not, this control panel object may be used to locate locked resources inside of Zope and clear ALL of their WebDAV writelocks. This does not clear locks caused by use of Versions.
executes the filter.
When locked objects are found, they are listed one per line with a checkbox that can be used to select the item. Also listed in each line is information about the lock(s) on the object - the user who created the lock (identified by the path to the user folder the user is defined in), and the locktoken that identifies the lock. In the majority of cases, there should only be one lock per object.
