Automatically lock RCS-controlled Org files when capturing/refiling

2017-09-13

I use RCS for various version control tasks where I only control a single file or I have a directory of files whose histories will be unrelated. The directory which contains my notes and agenda in Org format is like that. With RCS, when you commit your changes, i.e. check-in in RCS lingo, the file becomes "unlocked", that is, it’s write bits are disabled. If you want to make further changes, you will need to "lock" the file, after "checking it out" if necessary (see rcs(1) manual for detail on how it operates). Conveniently, in Emacs, when you use the VC mode, the file is always checked out, and only locked and unlocked. But when my Org files are unlocked, I cannot seamlessly capture or refile my entries because the files are read-only, and I have to manually lock them first. The following bit of code advices some Org-mode functions so that they try to detect RCS controlled files and ask to lock them if necessary.
