1- Check out CVSROOT/ into a sandbox (as repo admin).
2- Create a file "group" there.
3- Add a line of the format "group: user1 user2 userN" for each group.
4- cvs add this file.
5- Add the group file to the file CVSROOT/checkoutlist (see examples in
6- Commit CVSROOT/.

Alternatively, on Windows, it is easy to use the system groups and users
with cvsnt. I don't know whether a similar feature exists for Solaris.
