When I set so:
cvs -d :sspi:limited at myserver:/cvs rchacl -n -a all -u limited mydir
cvs -d :sspi:limited at myserver:/cvs rchacl -a read -u limited mydir/prog
User got:
cvs -d :sspi:limiteduser at myserver:/cvs get mydir
User got only mydir with files, without any subfolders
He can modify and add files in this folder(rules work), but can't see subfolders
cvs -d :sspi:limiteduser at myserver:/cvs get mydir/prog
He got this folder and rules work correctly (user can only read in
this folder and subfolders)
But if:
cvs -d :sspi:limiteduser at myserver:/cvs get mydir/prog1
cvs said:
cvsnt server: User limiteduser cannot read mydir/prog1

cvs rchacl -n -a all -u limited mydir
 -n gives limiteduser correct permissions for folder mydir only, but
does'nt see and work for his subfolders(mydir/prog1, mydir/prog2) And
user doesn't see mydir/prog too
cvs rchacl -a read -u limited mydir/prog - works correctly
Thanks in advance
