Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

I think :local: is only safe if you've only got one user as I don't
think it does much locking of access.  I expect someone from March-Hare
might clarify this.

For serious use, I think you should use a server.

If there's any money at all available for this you might get the basic
CVS Suite from March Hare and read the eBook that comes with it.
Of course if there's lots of money available you can get March Hare to
sort it out for you ;-)

no, the simplest solution is to not use a "server" at all. :local: is
simplest solution, and you don't have to worry about firewalls, services

running as UIDs, or making sure services are running while users are 
trying to do cvs operations. It's all local.
