I have updated the permissions patch to version 1.11.5. Because the security problems in 1.11.4, you should update immediately.

In case you don't know, this patch adds the following:

* directory/file/branch permissions done internally to CVS.  Each CVS
  user can have permissions on a file, users may be in groups and the
  groups given permissions, permissions can optionally propigate down
  directories.  The user does not need to have a real account on the
  CVS server, and the CVS server can run as any user (it doesn't have
  to be root).  Basically, this is access control lists (ACLs) built in
  to CVS.

* An SSL interface for CVS, basically pserver over SSL.

* Remote administraction capabilities, including the ability for the
  users to change their own passwords and the ability for administrators
  to add and remove users.
