That's almost true.  Since/if you're using :pserver: on the server side then
you need to modify "inetd.conf" option "--allow-root=" value.  Read this:

Also consider cvs will use repositories identified by symbolic links and
accepts multiple "--allow-root=" options.  Consider doing:

   mv <oldname> <newname>  # new name is hard linked
   ln <newname> <oldname>  # old name is symbolic link

In "inetd.conf" use "--allow-root=<newname> --allow-root=<oldname>" and
then access by old AND new names should work concurrently.

Don't know about this one myself.
