When you use pserver, you have to specify all the CVS repositories you
give people access to on the command line, each in a --allow-root
option. On systems like Savannah with around 5000 public repositories,
this gets over the command line limit of around 130KB.

I'm discussing that at address@hidden An old solution was to add
( There is also a
patch in the old Savannah project bug tracker to implement
( So
apparently work was done in 2001 but never integrate.

So my question is: I was once sent some Gna! documentation and I saw a
reference to a Perl suid script for pserver access. I have no clue on
how you implemented pserver access, and I wondered if you have some
comments on the preferred way to fix the issue, because I may well
work finishing the --allow-root-regexp integration :)

Maybe the best way to do so is to post a follow-up at
address@hidden (the archive has a mailto: link that does not break
the thread).
