Scrivener could very easily add an ability which would really simplify here: Export as Zip File.
This would be almost exactly like Backup to Zip -- it would just omit the time-date code added to title on the zip.

That's Google Docs, where you can actually even see another person typing on the document. I think I might be tempted to use that myself, where strong collaboration were needed, by Compiling a Scrivener project to an RTF including the optional horizontal lines to mark the components. That way, and with the anticipated Docs markup, it would be easy to paste back in just the final changes.

I don't know; maybe I've got that professional outlook too much on the brain. A mark-busy/checkout system would increase security, that's true, and that might be valuable. It's just that the most likely situation for it to break down would be during a hot-and-heavy mutual editing from two sites for a document, say to meet a deadline.

So... what would it take for an open-source, homegrown, collaboration site that would be built-to-match Scrivener's needs...
