If you share files between a Windows CVS server and Windows-based users,
you can use ntserver.  Then you only have to declare authorized users in
the passwords file and they will be able to connect to CVS without ever
specifying a password, since cvs will use the regular Windows users
management (including using the domain controller, if any).

Note that you can mix access methods (ie, some users using ntserver,
others using pserver or else), but bear in mind that the global security
won't be better that the weakest authorization scheme (pserver, in the
combination above).
