Description CXI 2005-01-02 06:47:46 UTC
The standard "database locked" page makes no provision for editors to preview
changes. This means that while the database is locked editing must halt
entirely. If, instead, previews were allowed, editors could continue to work on
drafts and submit them once the db was unlocked.
