Good.  We'll skip that.

It also means that everybody has to have the ability to use the
"cvs admin" commands, which can do unpleasant and permanent things
when misused.  I recommend not having them free for everybody to use.

The recommended solution is to read up on "cvs watch" and "cvs
edit" and use those abilities instead.  In my experience, notification
works just as well as reserved edits, assuming developers you
can trust with your code in the first place.
