/usr/local/www/html/twiki/data/Main/ReduceDMC.txt,v 2>&1
ci: RCS file /usr/local/www/html/twiki/data/Main/ReduceDMC.txt,v is in use

Go back in your browser and save your changes locally.

Turns out that a server crash left some rcs files that caused twiki to think a file was in use. I needed to deleted a file who's name began and ended with a comma (,????,)
