Hi All,

  We had to take our cvs server offline and move the cvsroot onto a new
server which is running CVSNT  2.5.03 we are having a permissions
problem.  We have put all the developers into a group called "cvs users"
in the windows 2003 management console.  We have given them full control
on the root folder (along with EVERYONE)  We connect to vs using extssh
from eclipse 2.1.  The sshd daemon is from cygwin on server 2003.  We
are able to login in and synchronize but when a developer does a commit
the file permissions change from full control to Cvsusers/everyone to
read for that user only.  Has anyone seen anything like this dealing
with NTFS permissions on 2003?
