Perhaps the scheme outlined at may be what you're looking

" could create a single, shared system user for each
        project in your repository, and give each developer their own line in
the `$CVSROOT/CVSROOT/passwd' file. The
               CVS username on each line would be different, but the system
username would be the same. The reason to have different
               CVS usernames is that CVS will log their actions under those
names: when melissa commits a change to a project, the
               checkin is recorded in the project's history under the name
melissa, not pubcvs. And the reason to have them share
               a system username is so that you can arrange permissions in the
relevant area of the repository such that only that
               account has write-permission there."
