You can get the newest patch (and info on this) at, it has the information about the permissions features merged into the standard documentation. You can look at the diff file for the documentation differences.

The answer to your question is you have to be an administrator to run the admin command (your user has to be in CVSROOT/admin). That's actually not a very good strategy, the cvs admin command contains a plethora of unrelated operations, some of them administrative and some not. I'll probably fix this in my next release, unless the cvs-nserver guys beat me to it.

BTW, you really need to upgrade to the perm13 version.

I'm being driven mad, here. I have two cvs servers, both running a patched
version of CVS that has directory level permissions. (cvs perm;
cvs-1.11.1p1.perm12) Problem is, I didn't download, compile, or install it,
so I have no idea where it came from and I just can't remember how to enable
users to be able to run cvs admin -l, (lock, which on one server can only be
run by the user cvsadmin) One server works fine but I just cannot enable
this functionality for users on the other server.

Does anyone know how to do this? or where I can find info on this version of

I've been searching all afternoon looking for some info on this verision of
CVS, and all I can find is info on the "normal" cvs which uses /etc/groups
to set which users can run the admin command, this doesn't seem to work for
my version of CVS though.
