This is probably more of a unix question than a cvs question, but...

I have setup CVSNT on linux, but I've run into a small problem.  When a user
commits their files up, the owner and group are set to that username.  After
that, no one else can update that file because of file permissions (and I
don't want to set world writable on those files). It's been a while since I
had to do a lot of unix stuff, so I don't remember how to solve this.  I
have a 'cvs' group that I would like all of the added files to be a part of,
what do I need to do to make new files use this group?
