One question to cvsnt developers,


Server: 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2151 linux

Client: 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2151 linux/winxp


            Why acl applied on _files_ in repository when user do `cvs update`, and not work when do `cvs checkout`?


If I read help about setacl command, I can read this:


“Usage: cvs chacl [-R] [-r branch] [-u user] [-j branch] [-n] [-p priority] [-m message] [-a [no]{read|write|create|tag|control|all|none}[,...]] [-d] [file or directory...]”


i.e apply setacl on _file or directory_


And it’s realy work, but only in update (as example)


Apply file acl permission on checkout operation – nice and realy need feature.


I don’t see any logic.


Big thanks for answer,
