I am currently using CVSNT version on WIn2k server.. What I
would like to do is to let my users be able to commit and check out and
update files but not allow them to create new files or directories. Is this

I tried to set the permissions such that the user cannot create files using
Win2k security settings on the folders. However, I find that with this,
users cannot even commite files due to the lock files not being able to be
created and deleted in the directory of the files to be committed.

Any help would be appreciated.
