  Hi Tony.

  Ok... but then I do not know how to allow the 'cvs ls' command
to anyone.

  Ok, I looked at the manual and that did not help as the rchacl
help information is pretty much non-existant (at least in my
CVSNT manual).

  I did manage to change the chacl setting for the root folder by
using the following command (note the period at the end):
  cvs -d :sspi:server:/repository rchacl -u user -a read .

  However, I have not seen this feature mentioned anywhere in
the docs.

  Anyway, that's one problem less on the way to setting better access
controls for our CVSNT repositories :-). Thanks for the answer...

  Best regards,
