We want to be able to overwrite the version on our library files so that when trivial changes are made, everyone isn't getting newer version flags because of their screws, but I can't convince PDM to allow users to do it.  For example, the Admin account has every permission, including: Can overwrite latest version during check in on Library… (Show more)
