This will not work if two people edit at the same time.  If I was
going to implement this I would do the changes locally and then
download the current state and merge the changes before uploading.
With this method the time where things can go wrong will be minimized
(locking should be good to have).  With the method where you edit and
upload all the changes you will overwrite changes done by other
persons during the editing time.
