I am using the LockDir parameter to avoid giving all cvsweb users write per=
mission to my repository files.  Cvsweb can work because its impersonation =
matches the permissions on the repository.  The annotate feature does not w=
ork.  I have determined that this is because cvsweb uses the "cvs server" c=
ommand and streams protocol to it.  When operating in this mode, the cvs pr=
ogram does not parse the config file and so does not pick up the lock dir p=
arameter.  It then tries to create locks in the repository directory.=0D
Is anyone aware of a version of cvswebnt that does not work in this way, or=
 of any other solutions to this problem.  Ideally, the cvs command would ob=
ey the LockDir command.=0D
