I am trying to restrict access to the whole project and grant each user 
access to individual directories when the need arises but am coming across 
a couple of issues.

I am using RADv6.0 as my client with the latest CVSNT.

When locking down access to the whole project using AclMode=normal I am 
getting the error - Error fetching resource list from history. Has anyone 
please got an explanation or resolution? I am the admin, and i own the 
project and all directories, and have ALL access to the whole project.

Alternatively, If i set access to NONE (cvs rchacl -R -a none DWPATWBuild) 
for all users and then grant Read Write (cvs rchacl -a read,write -u 
DevTemp DWPATWBuild) access to one particular user they still seem to 
inherit the NONE permissions no matter how high i set their prioity. Is 
this correct, how can i get around this? Or if i cant what is the 
suggested set-up to stop developers access all code without explicitly 
denying access for each user for each directory?

Any help or ideas would be a great help.

Thanks you very much
