First of all you probably cannot do what you want with CVS.  CVS is not
designed to work with "reserved checkouts".

This e-mail puts you on notice that I will not be bound by your
confidentiality notice and will feel free to review, disclose,
distribute, archive, laugh at, be amused by, poke fun publicly at,
and/or publish anything I get in e-mail, either directly or indirectly,
and whether intended for me or not, without any further notice.  If you
don't feel comfortable with that, I suggest that you not send any
e-mail, especially not to me; or at least that you use strong digital
encryption to ensure that your e-mail can't be read by anyone other than
its intended recipient.  There are many ways to do this, including using
such things as PGP, Lotus Notes, S/Mime, and many other similar systems.

I apologize to you if it was not your decision to add this notice to
your e-mail.  However, given the number of places that have legalized
shrink wrap licenses and the similarity of this license to same, I feel
like it is incumbent on me to put you on notice immediately regarding my
rejection of your notice.  Please forward it to whoever in your legal
department or management chain you deem as appropriate.
