We're running cvsnt on Linux, and having a wonderful time with 
it. It's been up for 3 years now, and we have a really happy install base, 
so thank you. 

One of our users downloaded and went to work with Tortoise 1.10, and 
Tortoise defaulted to setting exclusive locking for him. Now I have 67 
binary files with the -kbx option set, and "permissions" set to "444" If I 
hand edit the ,v files to say:
kopt     b;
permissions      666;

...then the files are fixed and work perfectly. 

But doing that for 67 more files seems like a nuisance, and not the right 
way to do the job. Can I safely use cvs admin -kb to take off the -kbx 
option? And will that fix the permissions 444 issue? And do the 
permissions really matter? 

Thank you,
