I think that CVS keeps always the permissions that the file has when you
add it to the project. Probably this is a feature that CVS lacks, i.e. the
to record the changes in the file permissions along with the changes in the
content of the file.
So, you should make sure that the file has the right permissions before
it into the project. I don't know any way of changing the permissions of a
that is already in the project.
