Hello All,

Access control list permission not working as expected.

C:\test>cvs setacl -u pete -a noread,nowrite,nocreate,notag TestFolder

C:\test>cvs ls -l -R TestFolder
   (The above line gives the following output:

    Listing module: TestFolder
    cvs server :User 'pete' cannot access TestFolder.  
This means noread works as expected.

Trying to set "nowrite" permission to a module named "TestFolder".

C:\test>cvs setacl -u pete -a read,nowrite,nocreate,notag TestFolder

TestFolder contains the follwoing files file1.txt, file2.txt

After editing the file1.txt, I am commiting the changes which creates a new version.

C:\test>cvs commit -m "testing nowrite permission" file1.txt

I am not understanding the effect of "nowrite" permission. can any body
explain me what Iam doing wrong?
