IIRC, he had the line "cvs -r" in the ~/.cvsrc file.  In order to affect
checkouts, he needs a line that starts with "co".  Unfortunately, I see no
checkout option that would make checkouts read only.

OTOH, isn't there an env var that can be set to do this?  Or he can use
"cvs watch on".

Well, the only possibilities I can think of are that the file is in the
wrong place, it has the wrong name, or it has the wrong format.  When
you run CVS, is $HOME set?  If so, is it set to the directory that
contains your .cvsrc file?  You did create the file on the client rather
than the server, no?
