Thank you very much.
I am much clearer now.
I thought any user can lock files as we do in Subversion (I am familiar with
Subversion but I had kind of a query for CVS from a team which needed me to be
clear on this)

CVS does not support workflows with a requirement for reserved edits.
If you have a real business reason that requires a SCCM process that in
turn requires reserved edits then try a tool that does support it, like
CVSNT (Free/GPL just like CVS) or ClearCase.
Note: CVS does have a 'lock' command - but it is administrative, not
part of the non-privileged user workflow.
