Summary:  Cannot commit files in CVSROOT

Original Submission:  Hi,

I tried to enable sending CVS messages to a mailing list as described in 

However, when I tried to commit the files I got an error:

~/savannah/bibulus/CVSROOT> cvs ci commitinfo loginfo 
Enter passphrase for key '/home/twid/.ssh/id_dsa': 
Checking in commitinfo;
/cvsroot/bibulus/CVSROOT/commitinfo,v  <--  commitinfo
new revision: 1.2; previous revision: 1.1
cvs [server aborted]: could not open lock file 
`/cvsroot/bibulus/CVSROOT/,commitinfo,': Permission denied
cvs commit: saving log message in /tmp/cvsjW9qtm

What did I do wrong?

Updated the FAQ.

Commiting in `CVSROOT/' is (permanantly) disabled.  We'll be working on a a web 
front-end to manage files under `CVSROOT/' (e.g. commitinfo, loginfo and 
modules) in the coming weeks.

Also, our FAQ is a little out-of-date in this regard (I will fix this now).
