The local copy gets deleted unless it's been modified -- if it's been
modified, it's up to the user to decide what to do.

You can use normal filesystem permissions to control access on a per-
directory basis.  People need read and execute permission on the
directory (and read permission on the files) to read stuff, they also
need write permission on the directory (but not the files) to commit
changes, add tags, etc.  If you do want to allow read-only users, you'll
need to use LockDir= in CVSROOT/config to put the lock files somewhere
other than in the repository since read-only users still need to be able
to create lock files.
