The Drupal web page says that it is content management software. And
from my limited experience with it, it's not what we need.

What we need is source control software. Something where we can check
in/check out/lock Flare projects to prevent team members from
overwriting each others' changes. We'll do all we can to avoid
merging concurrent edits (as I remember that as being painful), but we
need a solution that allows us to merge changes if necessary.
