We use CVSNT 2.5.03 Build 2382 and TortoiseCVS 1.10.10

This query is along similar lines to: 
, though there didnt seem to be an answer to that particular thread..

I am wanting to implement ACL's to only let the review manager to check 
in to HEAD, rather than developers.  I know how to setup the ACL's, but 
due to CVS treating the check in request as a success, due to is 
successfully ignoring it, it is possible that people will think the 
check in is successful when its not.  I have set the reporting 
preferences to 'LOUD' but this only does so much...

I have been trying to insert a script or something inbetween Tortoise 
and CVS ie within the precommand, postcommand etc, but I'm not having 
much luck.  I can pick up that the commit failed on postcommand due to 
changes in the arguments, but it doesnt look for a returned error code 
from the script.  Precommand will look for a returned error code, but 
does not pass through the target branch, where I could then review the 
ACL's that have been setup and make a decision...

Is there any other options?

Thanks in advance
