On version 2.0.26, I found something quite anoying concerning the branch 
right management.

I have a project on which 'default' user is read only and 'user1' is rwc :
cvs lsacl returns :

If 'user1' creates a branch and then work in it, he cannot commit in it 
unless he specified explicitly that he has the right to (through cvs 
chacl).IMO, this extra step will quickly make work tedious when working 
with branches. Hopefully, version 2.0.24 does conform to previous ACL 

I think HEAD ACL should expand to branch ACL for all users (not only 
default) when nothing is specified for that branch and that user.

So, in our exemple, the branch should be considered to have the same ACL 
than HEAD (default:r, user1:rwc)

What do you think ?
