It's a bad idea to have several developers within the
same sandbox since it's very easy to have them trounce
each others' changes, break the build, overwrite a
build that's being used, ...  In fact, if you start
changing permissions in order to help avoid these
problems, CVS won't work properly since noone will be
able to perform an update if they can't overwrite all
the files within the sandbox.  So, don't share

If you want advisory locks, rather than reserved
locks, the last time I checked, it's the latest patch
on the list.  I'm not sure if it needs to be applied
to cvs-1.11, cvs-1.11.1, or the latest development.

If you need help applying a patch, man patch.
