Sorry if there is a bit of confusion but I am a newbie and it is the first
time I am trying to create a new module. Coming to the point, 'cvs' account
system is owner of whole repository (os); 'cvs' account virtual
(administration account) is owner of whole repository and has (or should
have) full access to repository.
I know that I can set acl for module/direcory to manage partial permission
(I will have to create other virtual account and group) but now I am
simulating the creation of a new module/project using the command 'cvs
import' (I am logged as 'cvs' os account).
Also it is not clear what it does:  it has to read OR write
Does it use $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/CVS/fileattr.xml as acl config file per whole
The module/project 'test2', in my example, doesn't exist just and I have to
create it so I expect it has to create/write something as too check/read if
you have permission (acl) to make it.
Anyway I shall be much grateful you if you can report the right commands to
create a new module with acl active.

Thanks a lot
