This paper presents a system called E-Breaker for supporting small and medium size group authoring of any kind of documents following a regular structure. The system supports a decentralized model of development, thus not requiring a central repository. A set of rules for content ownership maintains the synchronization of the work among all members of the developing team which can work on- or off-line. It allows fine-grained locking of documents' content.
