That means that you've told CVS to run as the system user 'jaya', but
there's no such user in the system password file.  In the CVSROOT/passwd
file (where you must have an entry for jaya or you would have gotten a
different error), you can specify a system user to run as in the third
field; if you don't, you must have a system user with the same name as
the CVS user.
