Administrative database file protection problem

From: Dustin Cavanaugh

My repository is on unix (Sun); the owner is "cvs" and the group is "cvs". Whenever a user changes one of the Administrative database files, cvs complains of Permission denied. Users (developers) are members of the cvs group (though its not their primary group).

I notice that when the database is rebuilt (either by commit or init), all the database file protections are reset to -r--r--r--. I then su to cvs, do a cvs init, and then manually reset the protections to -rw-rw-r--.

Anybody got a clue to resolving this issue more permanently? Just to make matters worse, I'm also going to have to restrict developers to certain modules/projects.
