Utilizing the readers and writers files in your case would require two
repositories.  You'll probably want to use standard UNIX users and groups to do
what you want.  Look up the LockDir config file setting in the manual and make
sure everyone has write access to the LockDir tree and maybe the CVSROOT/history
file.  After that it's just like UNIX.
