Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

I'm curious... What are your necessities above those already present on 
CVSNT ACLs (http://www.cvsnt.org/manual/Security.html - see "Setting 
permissions for files and directories" and "Groups of users can be 
assigned permissions")?
