Thanks Larry and Jeff,

I learned some from both of your responses, and will definitely be using
aspects of both responses.
For this particular problem, the following seems to give me exactly what I
I have only one unix account: cvsuser...
In CVSROOT/passwd:

In taginfo:

In <script>, the following command line arguments are now available:
$1 The user who logged in via pserver- not necessarily the system user
$2 tag name
$3 operation (add, mov, del)
$4 repository
$5 file revision [file revision ...]

So if user1 logs in and tries to tag something, <script> is kicked off, and
$1=user1, while $USER=cvsuser

This is exactly what I need.

Thanks again

Recent versions of CVS also set the $CVS_USER environment variable.  For
