Is there an interface of some kind which will allow
the files in the repository to be owned by one user
and still allow other users to check-in and checkout.

As of now, files in the cvs repo are being owned by
person who last accessed the file. the same person now
has the capability to go to the file in the CVS repo
and perform actions like chmod.
