Otherwise users can just "cd /to/the/CVSROOT" and gain access to thinks they should not have access to. Nothing in what you pointed me to is new, nothing there talks about interactions with the underlying filesystem ACLs, etc. Unless CVSNT runs as "SETUID so-other-user" and the entire CVS repository is non-accessable by casual "cd /to/the/CVSROOT" NOTE: I don't see anything you pointed me to that says it works that way I don't see how I can stop users from "cd /to/the/CVSROOT" and looking around. Please understand, perhaps my understanding is clouded with the fact I've been using standard UNIX based CVS for +12 years and I don't know some key difference with CVSNT.
