If you really want to deactivate them, you would need to do it on the server
side (or else what's to prevent the client from getting an executable with the
features activated?).

<disclaimer>I don't use pserver so the following may not be

The way I'd try to do this would be to create a separate cvs server executable
that doesn't allow these actions and have everyone except the admin use this
executable.  The admin should use the normal executable.

Hope this helps,

We use cvs on a Linux machine running pserver. We have WinCVS-clients to
acces the repository.
Is there a chance to prevent the users (except for an cvs-administrator)
from tagging and branching and especially from removing tags or
branches? We all know wich problems can be caused by removing tags...
Maybe there is a way to deactivate these methods in the client?

Thanks for your help,
