I'm attempting to write a small Java application which performs a similar
function to the cvs_acls.pl script which has been widely distributed.
Essentially I want to prevent some users from committing files to a release
I've got past the hurdles of retrieving the filenames etc. but I cannot seem
to obtain the user from anywhere. Calls to System.getProperty("user.name")
come back with "SYSTEM" which is the user that the CVSNT service is running

1. Can anyone help on this front? Has anyone done this before or am I
wasting my time :(
2. Does anyone have a modified version of the cvs_acls.pl script which works
under CVSNT?
