ACL:s will handle all of the permission stuff for you, but you have to *limit* general unspecified access first. By default all users have full access so specifying read access for a specific user somewhere will only add read to already existing read/write, which obviously is not getting you where you want to be. >> 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 How could these commands succeed? They do not contain any cvs commands at all...
