Oh, please..

Well, is it the consensus of the maintainers that they will *never*
accept any access control feature patches for CVS? Or is it that if
someone is willing to back-port and contribute this from the CVSNT side,
they will accept it?

I.e. is the opposition to ACLs a matter of priorities, or philosophy?
If it is philosophy, is it the position of the maintainers that ACLs are
so evil that they will actively oppose any attempt by anyone to insert
such a feature into CVS, in order to protect innocent users from this

Just asking all these idiotic questions because no one is addressing
that point. All I'm seeing are comments along the lines of "if your
company VPs cannot all take time to sit down and do a top-down
reorganization of your IT department to take advantage of CVS as it
stands in its purity today, just go away and don't bother us".

Oh, heck, never mind - stupid me for offering to investigate this. Let's
kill this topic and get back to the regular topics of discussion..
