No, not for the modul - the module does not exist before You have imported it
and hence does not have any acls. (As far I unterstand it, this is the reason
for the fact, that You can not import sources to a repository when set
'AclMode=normal' in the 'config' file )

My workaround was always to set 'AclMode=compat' in the 'config'-file in the
CVSROOT-directory of the repository, then do the import and after that set back
the 'AclMode=normal'

But I am a newbee to cvsnt, so there may exist other - more satisfing -
solutions , which I don't know.
