The cvs-cvs address is for reporting commits to the repository, not
questions. I have directed the reply to the address@hidden list.

For write access, use of the CVS triggers is a good way. There is a
script in the contrib directory called cvs_acls you can use.

For read access, the use of UNIX groups is reasonable.

The taginfo CVS trigger may be used to prohibit the modification of tags
by individuals.

This list is for CVS, not CVSNT. If you wish to ask about CVSNT, you
will find better answers from the web site.
