Hi Todd and Lawrence,

Thanx a lot for ur suggestions on giving folder level in cvs. It worked 
perfectly well and Iam 
managing my repositories pretty well.
Thanx again ....
Now my concerns are whether I have a previlage to lock the tags that are 
created. As I have worked 
more with perforce, I have a doubt whether I can do the same with cvs.
When a user creates a tag, is there any means by which other users cannot 
update the tag.

Thanx in advance :)
