Although Arthur is correct that CVS itself does not support branch acls, I believe that CVS can support it using the cvs_acls script. As to which is better at doing it the way you want, I don't know ... you may want to experiment.

if you are using a fedora (mine is core 4) system you will find the cvs_acls in:

and I think doing what you wanted has been discussed in the past on this list, see the archive:

good luck.

You can use something like the cvsacls script in the contrib directory
of CVS or "upgrade" to CVSNT (free/GPL, unix/linux/windows etc) that has
additional functions for access control (see cvs chacl).

I would like to restrict access to a particular branch of a module for
certain users, and am not finding the relevant info in the manual or
google.  I'd be grateful for some advice.  Thanks.
