Is there a possibility for the cvs_admin to reset the "editor" settings 
for a specific user in a specific project structure?

sometimes in our environment there is a need to reset editors
of all files after making a release to have a clean starting point.
It is very anoying to connect all developers and ask for doing
this, somebody does not do this, somebody don't do it right, so
it should be better for the project leader to notify all users
that a global unedit will be done next and do it himself.

I know that i could do this by editing "fileattr.xml" on the server,
but i don't want to do so (i don't know what i disturb on this way).

So my quesion is: is there a legal way to do this with "cvs ...." ?

using: CVSNT 2.5.01 (Travis) Build 1976 on server and client
