Description Nigel Arnot 2020-02-04 12:17:49 UTC
If one user of a document in a shared filestore has it open, another user on a different system attempting to open the same file is informed of this through a dialog asking him what action to take. However, the information given is 

"Document <name> is locked for editing by <username> <date/time>"

The information in the lockfile also includes the name of the system which has locked the file, which is extremely useful for getting the file unlocked. 
Example of lock-file contents:

,migtest,artemis.silson.com,04.02.2020 11:48,file:///home/migtest/.config/libreoffice/4; 

Please can the information conveyed to a user attempting to open this file include the hostname (here artemis.silson.com):

"Document <name> is locked for editing by migtest on system artemis.silson.com since 04.02.2020 11:48"

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put a Libreoffice file on a shared filestore and open it on logged in on SYSTEM_A by USER_A
2. Log in as User_B on SYSTEM_B and attempt to open the same file

Actual Results:
 Dialog not displaying that the file is open on SYSTEM_A

Expected Results:
Include SYSTEM_A in the dialog

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
