A[nother] way of doing this is to have everyone share a .scriv project on Dropbox and have a strict schedule on when you can open it; or an effectively way of communicating if it is currently open. Scrivener will try and protect you from opening an opened project, but its better to have a system. Then a method of using labels or some other obvious meta-data flag for "check-out" is important. You check out pieces of the outline and mark them with your name; drag them out of the project and into the binder of your offline working project. You work on them and when you are done, you drag the pieces back into the collaborative project and remove the check-out. Labels are pretty good for this, since you can tint icons and such with the colour. Give each person their own label and now you know when something is out, and who has it, so they if they forgot to check it back in or never got around to editing it, you can ask and clear it. It's not strict, and it requires cooperation and communication, but it can work well.
