RE: folder level access in cvs

There's another approach to controlling access to directory *and files*
that is in the 'contrib' subdirectory.  It's a script called cvs_acls
that provides access control lists for your repository.  It avoids the
increasing nastiness (IMO) of having to juggle an ever-expanding list of
*nix groups to match the different access requirements to your
repository.  That is the inevitable end-game of the approach described
in <>.

Having said that, I ran into some problems using the original script.
There were some bugs and some not-so-nice features.  As a result, I
rewrote the script last month.  The new script's name is cvs_acls2.  I
submitted it to the ccvs project this month for regular inclusion in its
distribution.  I think you may find it useful.  I've added the script
and its documentation into the issues log on the ccvs project
