Re: CVSROOT write permission vulnerability

I'm starting to wonder if removing :local: mode might not be a bad
thing.  It would make things more awkward on single-computer
installations (at home I use it on the Linux box, and pserver on
the Macs and Windows box), but it would stop people from doing
something natural that turns out to be dangerous.

I don't know how serious you are on this one but _I_ sure couldn't
work without it. The only thing you could possibly imagine is to
disable local mode on network mapped drives. And even then a
switch to enable it nonetheless is necessary. But while working
on my local drive I don't want to mess with any server stuff.

bye  Fabi
