Something like this should work (as a repository administrator, so you
don't lock yourself out):

Lock down 'mybranch' so that only user1 and user2 have read/write
access to it:

cvs chacl -R -r mybranch user1:rwc
cvs chacl -R -r mybranch user2:rwc
cvs chacl -R -r mybranch default:n

Lock down HEAD so only certain users can write, others
can read:

cvs chacl -R user3:rwc
cvs chacl -R user4:rwc
cvs chacl -R default:r
