I'm running my CVS server (1.11.1) on a Linux Redhat 7.2, accessed via pserver from Win32 clients.

In this server box, I've got setup /dev/shm --a shared memory drive (aka RAM Drive). Is there any reason why setting


in my config files is a bad idea? All users can read/write to this area.

I figured that
a) it'd be a lot faster than normal HD access
b) it wouldn't take that much RAM anyway
c) normal considerations of not having to give everyone write access to my repositories.

Also, is there any problem if I use the same LockDir entry for several repositories? (all running on the same box)
