That is what the "exclusive" mode is for. Each file can be "unreserved" or "reserved" (or a half way variant). Set it as follows: Cvs update -k+x file.ext Cvs commit -f -m "change file mode" file.ext The "default mode" for new files can be set in cvswrappers. > I know that this goes against the principle of cvs, however that is > what we would like to do. And that is one of the reasons CVSNT is not CVS, CVSNT supports many additional features that CVS does not - including this one. Regards, Arthur Barrett
