You sent this to me privately. Please don't do that - if you had sent it to
the list, someone else might have replied by now.

There are 3 possibilities:

1) It may be sufficient that anyone who can commit, can branch. If so, a
readers or writers file should suffice.

2) Use the hook scripts in CVSROOT to control access. IIRC, there is a
cvs_acls included in the distro.

3) Corey Minyard's ACL patch.

NB: I have never used any of these myself, so consider this as a pointer to
further research.
