A public forum for discussing the design of software, from the user interface to the code architecture. Now closed.
How do wikis resolve collisions (simultaneous updates with partially overlapping changes) if they don't utilize a checkin/checkout mechanism as CVS does?

It's a great euphemism for no locking at all. Instead the application (wiki) detects whether the data I edited and am now saving has been modified by someone else since I started editing it. Very easy to implement with a "Last Modified" timestamp field in each database row.
