Thank you all for your input on the topic of shared resources. Made me think 
about it, but unfortunally it is something I can not change in this database 
project. However, cvs can be made to ignore the content of the Root-Files with 
an entry in the .cvsrc file in the users home directory. Something like this 
with the user set accordingly:

cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot

Having all accounts in the same group, using the watch feature (readonly 
checkout) and locking (write enabling) with "cvs edit -c file" all users can 
work in the same checkout area with a reasonable chance to not step on each 
others toes. We will see how this plays out ... 
Cvs does no longer change the user when navigating the tree and records the 
changes of each user as it should.

Thanks to Mark for the tip on the .cvsrc file.
