Gerhard Fiedler: > /TESTREPO/blabla C:/info.bat $USER %r %c %d Shouldn't this line (in precommand) be blabla C:/info.bat $USER %r %c %d --------------- Well, that's what I originally tried. But strangely enough, it refuses to react on a certain module in precommand. I tried every combination I could think of: (Im writing the combinations as a form of regex to avoid having to list a lot of unnessecery text) [/|\]*([TESTREPO][/|\])*blabla[/|\]* C:/info.bat $USER %r %c %d So the things I tried is with and without TESTREPO prefixing blabla and with and without certain slashes and backslashes between and pre and post fixing. Always with a backslash or slash in between though. Tony: You could bypass such a check simply by creating CVS/Root and CVS/Repository files and running update -d. ------------- Yes I can create a repo that only contains the module that I want to prevent users from accessing with other commands than export and then use cvs [command] -d [blablarepo] to specify that particular repo and use precommand in that repo's cvsroot to check what command was run and preventing other commands than export based on that. But I want to avoid having to create a new (extra) repo for this purpose if at all possible. Arthur: Further to Tony's and Gerhard's comments on this. It appears that the documentation is wrong - premodule was never designed to allow a "fail" to be passed, and from what I've been told from Tony it would be very difficult (if not impossible) to do. I think the problem you are trying to solve is an interesting one and I'll think about what can be done in CVSNT to assist this in future, and I've already created a bug to update the documentation. For the short term I think you can get what you want by relying on the ACL's to prevent this user from doing anything except "reading" the specific module, and writing a "precommand" script to look for the case when they try and "export" (it'll require some parsing of the command params though). Regards, Arthur -------------- Okay. I also have a request, that there also will (if possible) be passed an %o parameter (modulename) to the precommand script (in a future version of cvsnt) as there is in premodule. I need an administrative file that has the possibility to stop the cvs server from preforming a command and that also has the name of the module aswell as the command available as parameters. When newer versions of cvsnt comes out, can I then safely upgrade the version of cvsnt that I am using? converting the data to a possible new format is not desireably. Since I then would have to write a script that must parse or checkin and checkout many GB of data. Regards, Thomas. ___________________________________________________________ Skal du købe ny bil?
