Because our project handles a lot of binary files and art assets (game developed in Unity 3D) we really need locking ala SVN to keep our artists from stomping all over eachother. I know there is a locking extension for Hg, but how do I use it with a bitbucket hosted repo? Can I? I'm worried that even if I figure it out, TortoiseHg won't have a graphical hook for locking whch defeats the purpose since it is finicky artists that need the feature and asking them to use the command line is like asking a cat to take a shower.
I'm the author of the lock extension (http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/LockExtension). You cannot use it with Bitbucket since it must be enabled on both the client- and the server-side (and Bitbucket doesn't allow you to enable extensions on the server-side).
Bitbucket doesn't offer any server side hooks configuration options at the moment. In adiditon to that, we don't recommend placing image/binary file data in Mercurial. All your code is fine, but the image data doesn't work well with Mercurial and your repository will grow very fast.
At the moment, I'm not aware of any great tools for this workflow, but perhaps someone else here can make a suggestion.
