Hi all. [Using CVSNT 2.5.03 build 2382 on both server and client. Server running on Win2003 and client running on WinXP SP2, both with full updates applied.] Do the following: * Log in as a CVS admin. * Set AclMode=normal in the main CVSROOT/config file. * Have a folder hierarchy A/B in the repository. * Execute 'cvs chacl -n -u xxx -a read' from checked out folder A or use an equivalent rchacl command. * There should be no other rights set for the A/B folder. * Log in as user xxx (not a CVS admin account, but I do not think this is important). Now you may check out the A/B folder even though you should not be able to. You may do this either directly or by checking out the base A folder. If you explicitly set the noread rule for user xxx for the A/B folder then everything works as expected, i.e. you may not directly check out the A/B folder and when checking out the A folder its B subfolder does not get checked out. I checked the fileattr.xml files in the repository and the one in A/CVS clearly states that the read rule for user X should not be inheritable but CVSNT seems to be ignoring this. Anyone else have any comments on this? Best regards, Jurko Gospodnetiæ
