Often it is useful to first create an empty repository as

  cvs -d /the/cvs/root/directory init

this will populate the $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/* files as well.

why g+s ? g+rx would seem more logical  (g+s sets directory-groupid on file
creation, but files won't be created).

If you have a big directory tree, do 

  chmod -R go+r,go-w $CVSROOT
  find $CVSROOT -type d -exec chmod go+rx,go-w {} \;
