some package command that could arrive at the same time (by e-mail). The level of
protection this locking buys you depends on the locking policy you have configured in your

If you are within a package source tree, all you need to say is


to edit the users file for that package. In order for that particular feature to work
properly, the package must have been placed under dist control, or at least the packinit
command from the dist package must have been run.

Otherwise, you may specify a system name, and optionally a version number if that is not
enough to disambiguate. Using '-' will get you the lattest version available.

In any case, there must be a proper setting of the distribs file to use this command. If
that file is not accurate, the package command will not be able to produce a users file
