CVS does not handle permissions itself, it relies on the operating
system.  To do what you want, you'll want to set the permissions on each
directory so that the admin has write permission but other group members
only have read permission.  You'll need to set LockDir in CVSROOT/Config
to some directory (outside the repository) where everyone has write
access for lock files.  CVS doesn't support permissions at the file
level, only the directory.
