Thank you for your attention. Actually i meant "chown" and not "chmod" !

For the second question about a lock directory, i wonder what is the benefit to create an externel directory for the lock files ?
And i don't know how to use the #cvs_lock files. Is it an important aspect of cvs ?

I presume you mean "chown", not "chmod".  Yes, that looks reasonable.

I don't understand the question.

And please send all CVS qustions to address@hidden rather than sending
them directly to me.
