I think there may be atomicity problems when mounting
a CVS repository via NFS.

I'm assuming you're asking about POSIX file system

It's perfectly fine to use ACLs within the CVS repo,
in fact I promote them since it makes things much
simpler.  However, be sure you understand exactly how
permissions are used within the repo.

One thing you'll need to do is create a loginfo script
that'll setfacl new directories and the archive file
each time it's checked in since there's no decent
mechanism for new files to inherit ACLs.

Hope this helps,
