Hi Steven,

I just give developers SSH access.

For UNIX clients, they just set
( in the environment of course. make sure you use
SSHv1, last I heard SSHv2 had a bug that prevented it
from being used in this way. I ran into it when I first
tried this; SSHv2 will actually hang during CVS commits/tags/etc )

It'll ask for a password for every CVS commit/tag/etc 
this way, you don't do "cvs login". You can use SSH public/private
keypairs ( the trick is to use no passphrase ) if people
complain about having to enter their password all the time.

One time I bound inetd to the loopback and made people use SSH
tunnels. This works ok too, kind of a hassle though. It's the only
way I could figure out how to deal with Mac clients.
