If you create an adminstrative file CVSROOT/readers and then add the user
logins as separate lines into this file then CVS will only allow read access
for these users. Then you can disable the file system locks on these users.

Or you can explicitly allow write to CVSROOT/history for all users, this way
you can control access via the NTFS file system.

Lock files are not used anymore if you enable the Lockserver service.

But CVS write temporary data to the Temp dir used by CVS (configured in the
control panel). This folder therefore must have full access for everyone.

Subject: [cvsnt] Read Only Access using sspi

Our repository is set up using sspi authentication. Users use their network
login when using CVS, so I can control access to the repository by assigning
access rights on the server directories by network login id. This works for
those who I want to give full access, but if I give someone read-only access
they still can't access the repository because CVS attempts to write a
history and a lock file. Is there an easy way around this or do I just have
to give them full access and trust that they're not going to start modifying
