RE: File permission problem with cvs

When a file is added AFTER a watch has been set on a set of files (not a
directory), the new file is not being watched because it was not in
existence when the watch was originally set.  You can update but will not
see read only permissions on the new file.  You could add a watch to that
new file though and then update.

If the watch is set on a directory and a new file is added (and committed),
when an update is performed, you should see the read-only permissions on the
new file.   

You might want to consider making a 'playarea' in the repository so you can
experiment with CVS without disrupting anyone's work.  It has been very
useful especially since when it was installed here no one knew how to use it
including me and I'm supposed to be responsible for it.
