Don't worry about it. 'cvs remove' doesn't actually delete anything from
your repository. Users can never permanently remove anything as long as they
go through the CVS interface (if they have direct access to the repository
via telnet or mounted drives, that's a completely different matter).

Having to go to the administrators each time I want to 'cvs remove' a file
would be rather annoying.

If you *still* feel you need to prevent users from removing files, then have
a look at the contrib/cvs_acls script - it *might* do this, I don't know.

I'm pretty sure the contrib/cvs_acls script will do this. I haven't used it,
so I'm afraid I can't give you details on how to configure it.
