I still think it should be modeled more after the getpwnam() type
passwd functions and return a pointer to a structure containing all
fields from the file so that the data can be cached and the passwd
won't need to be reaccessed for every field.
You are right. There must be a struct like this struct cvs_passwd {
        char * username;
        char * passwd;
        char * alias;
        /* from CVSROOT/users */
        char * notify_name;
} cvspasswd_t;
and corresponded function
cvspasswd_t * getcvspwent(const char * user, const char * passwd_file);
or even better cvspasswd_t * getcvspwent(const char * user, int file_type /*
PASSWD_LOCAL is for ~/.cvspasswd and PASSWD_ROOT is for CVSROOT/passwd

Let's name them like the system functions. The system getpwent() iterates over the entries in the file, returning a new passwd structure with each call. getpwnam() looks up a single passwd structure by user name.

Unless my grasp of NT terminology is worse than I think, under local
mode on UNIX, the caller principal is assumed to be the user name.
something prevent that under NT?
Sorry for some uncertainty. I meant that user's caller prinicipal and
CVS user name could be deferent.

What is written in the log file on commit in local mode under NT then?
