Dear Noel,

At the moment i am interested only to  refresh the ACL when we tag a file. Because the loginfo script u sent me does not refresh the ACL when i insert a tag on  a file or files. CVS actually removes the ACL information from that tagged file or files because it recreates the file in case of tag as well, like the case when some one check in a file. So it was a requirement to run a script through  taginfo administrative file.

Can u please help in this regard.

Of course loginfo
runs it only on check in, add and import case, but
not in case of tag.
Should i run it through taginfo file as well or some
changes in script
are requred ?

Thanks for ur help.

File system ACLs are only good for file system
elements. CVS keeps one archive file for each file,
not for each branch, so it won't do anything for

I think there may be other partial solutions for
branches in which commitinfo does the checking (and
therefore doesn't afford real security since users can
subvert it).

Are you asking 'cos you want user level permissioning
for branches?
