Dear Noel yap,

Sorry i am asking a question related to little older thread in mailing list. I implemeted ACL on directory level as was suggested, and do not implemented on files. But what is reason that it is not recomended ? If a user  have a permission on folder but not on a file then he cannot checkout the code.

Can u please also recall to tell me what is required to do in loginfo file in this case ?

The answer is a little trickier than this, actually.

I remember having to put something in loginfo so that
ACLs would get properly created from the directory
(default ACLs aren't appropriate here since you
probably don't want the directory's execute and write
bits to be inherited by the files).

 Can i use solaris access control list ? Is cvs
works fine when using acl ?


(Think about this logically: cvs is run as the user
performing the
action. Therefore, it can only affect a file in a
given way if the
user has permission to do so.)

Beware ownership changes of files, though. (And note
that you
probably don't want to use ACLs on files anyway, you
want to use
them on directories.)
