Please stop trying to pick fights.

You may have inferred that "all authorised students
would implicitly be given permission to access the
CVS server,"  but no such thing was implied.  Indeed,
the original post left it open that students can grant
or deny access to other students and grant or deny
access to those not having system accounts.

My reply made no assumptions and was meant to cover
the bases in order to be most helpful to the poster.
