i know i'm bothering you :-) but i'm having a problem trying to 
implement acls in the repository.
For some strange reason acls works only if i set permissions to users 
and not to groups. I'm referring to system groups, not groups created in 
This is the lsacl command:

Directory: .
Owner: emiliano



The denial works for the single user but not for the group.

At first the group was "CVS STAP Developers" and i thought it was an 
issue with the spaces in the group name, but nothing changed. Then i 
thought it might have been that this group is defined in the domain and 
tried with a local group (my machine is a linux joined to the domain 
that inherits all users and group via samba). Nothing changed too. In 
the manual there's: "If SystemAuth is enabled CVSNT will automatically 
add all the system groups for the user to the list
of available groups. If you don’t require other groups then editing the 
group file is unnecessary.".
This doesn't seems to be the case.

Again, am i doing something wrong?

thanks in advance
