Do you really want to allow any operation except commit?  Even tag and
admin -o?  If so, I'm afraid you're out of luck.  What you *can* do is
prevent *any* modification of the repository.  To do that, just set the
permissions on the repository directories such that read-only users do
not have write permission and read/write users do.  You'll also need to
set LockDir= in your CVSROOT/config file to put the lock files somewhere
other than in the repository since read-only users still need to be able
to create lock files.
