Assumption 1: your repository is on a *nix system.
Assumption 2: you are not using pserver with only one REAL user account.

create unix groups (/etc/group) of users and set group write capability of
directories to the correct group. Also make sure the directories are not world
(other) writeable.


and as you are a new admin make sure you read at least
and probably best to just start at the beginning and read most of
I like to have a local copy for fast access.

also search:

systems and others I believe have mentioned getting finer grained control
using commitinfo scripts.
