Hi Manish,

I do not know of any implementations of inetd that will read more than
the first entry of the /etc/inetd.conf file for a given port number

You probably want to have the equivalent of the following inetd.conf

cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/etc/

and have /usr/local/etc/ have the following text:

/usr/bin/env -i /usr/local/bin/cvs cvs -f \
  --allow-root=/export/home/M7stackrepos \
  --allow-root=/export/home/WOSGrepos  \
  --allow-root=/export/home/SCCPrepos \

This allows you to continue to add more repositories without worrying
about the line length limit imposed by the inetd program.

Note: The above assumes that /usr/bin/env exists and that the '-i'
option will remove all but the default environment variables. You may
find that the env executable lives in a different directory and it may
need '-' instead of '-i' to start the new command with an empty
environment. (For example, FreeBSD uses 'env -' and RedHat Linux uses
'env -i'.)
