Excuse me for the late of my answer :$

How could you catch the user name?
In taginfo file, it seems not possible. Are you calling the pl script with
a standard "ALL c:/perl/bin/perl.exe tag-limit.pl" ?

Thanks a lot for these hints!

We have created such limitation our CVS server by creating a pearl script
that enforces such requirements. The pearl script is called from the
taginfo file. My pearl script looks something like:


use strict;

my $i;
my ($user,$tag,$function) = @ARGV;

if ($function eq "del")
    if( ($user eq 'clehman') || ($user eq 'bruedy') || ($user eq
        print "ok $user, you can delete tags\n";
        exit 0;
    print "$user can't delete tags.\nContact Bill Ruedy to remove tag
    exit 1;

if ($tag =~ /\AT_.*/)
    exit 0;
if ($tag =~ /\ABR_.*/)
    exit 0;

print "All Tag names must begin with a T_  and branches begin with BR_\n";
exit 1;

I have been meaning to add some code to force user names passed in to all
lower case. I have had some problems with case sensitivity and differences
between clients on Linux and windows systems. Hope this helps.

Subject: [cvsnt] restricting tags privileges


Do you know if it is possible to limit acces some functions on tags like:
- all users can create a tag
- only administrators can move or delete a tag, and create a rtag ?
Chacl can answers to the second point, but, if I use this command, I will
loose the capability for all to create a tag...
