A simple ping ‘this template #’ letting others know
that I maybe working on this. Also, re-ping for check-out
if I stopped working or uploaded a remix.

This may prevent: ‘So I downloaded this template, wrote
a good part, produced it, then right as I was going to upload,
noticed that YOU uploaded a new part to the template. AND, it
actually fits the part I wrote. So I can create a splitter template, or
create extra hobby work for myself.’

A major improvement that is only a suggestion.

An interesting suggestion!
I'm not sure if that would not come with undesired side effects:
Assume, you can see someone has indicated "I'm already working on an [instrument] addition to this" -
that would keep people from trying themselfs ("what, X is going to add a bass, well, then I don't need to bother!" type of feeling, that's the opposite of motivating),
or might spark a feeling of competition, thinking "I know X is working on a bassline, hah, I'll beat him to it!"

I do get why you are asking for this feature, but wouldn't it be possible to leave a comment on the parent to indicate you are planning to work with this, too?

Yes, the issue doesn’t occur too frequently. And right, basic communication tools could remedy situations like this.
