Hello guys! I'm playing around with cvs chacl on a Linux box with CVSNT 1.5.01_1976. All my users connect via SSH, I have one repo where I like to give certain users read/write access to certain directories, others only read access. So far, so good. Until now I've managed CVS access simply by entering a user's login name into CVSROOT/writers. Now my question(s); a) Do I need to have an "writers" file at all when I use chacl? b) I've tried to gave user "joe" write access to a single directory and read-only access to the rest by doing # complete module $ cvs -a read -u joe -m "You have only read access to this file/folder" . # certain directory $ cvs -a read,write,control,tag -u joe foo/bar Both commands succeeded, but if I test my restrictions the user has still full read-write access to everything. Okay, he's listed in "writers", I've removed him from there, but now he also has no write access to his foo/bar directory. It seems as CVSNT completly ignores the fileattr settings. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance. Tommy. -- Ich weiß, das ich nichts weiß. (Sokrates)
