Tony - thanks for the response, but I think my question might have been unclear. Say I have a project named 'TreePocWebProject' and I want to limit cvsuser to read only access, so I do the following: cvs -r checkout TreePocWebProject cd TreePocWebProject Now I run this cvs chacl -R cvsuser:r (or just 'cvs chacl cvsuser:r') This is the output: ? .classpath,v ? .owner ? .perms ? .project,v ? .websettings,v ? .website-config,v ? JavaSource ? TreePocWebDiagram.gph,v ? WebContent ? writers Now if I log in as cvsuser I have read-only access only to the files in the top-level directory. Everything in JavaSource is still writable by this user. This is what I meant by it not being recursive. (When I say log in, I mean I return to an IDE [Websphere Application Developer] establish a CVS connection and execute a commit from that environment). Perhaps I'm missing a step or misunderstandign something? Thanks again.
