Couple options here:
1) You can checkout the same module/branch on the webserver and then run
a cron job that does a CVS update regularly in that tree. CVS
directories would be in webspace and conflicts would be a problem here I
suppose though they should be *extremely* rare.
2) You can setup a scheduled script that does a cvs export to a clean
directory structure and then copies over the webspace. No CVS
directories in the webspace and conflicts wouldn't be a problem. New
files only on the server would also be preserved though that's probably
against policy if you want auto-updates of production servers.
3) Craft something that works for your specific needs.
Basically it comes down to CVS being a passive keeper of updates and not
a pusher of those updates.
